Odd Numbers Drawn, 98 Split the Cash

On Tuesday, August 28th, the winning numbers drawn in the Florida Fantasy 5 game were a sequence of odd numbers, 1-3-5-7-9. A total of 98 players played those exact numbers and they will have to share the prize money. Only one of the tickets was a Quick Pick. Each winner will end up taking home $1,995.32.

Florida Lottery representative Shelly Safford said that 1-3-5-7-9 is the second most picked set of numbers, after 1-2-3-4-5. Because people regularly play numerical patterns and birthdays, jackpots are often split when winning numbers are all under 31.

Fantasy 5 jackpots usually range from $50,000.00 to $250,000.00, depending on the numbers of winners. Prior to this win the highest number of winners to share a jackpot in the current version of the Fantasy 5 game, where players pick 5 of 36 numbers, were 47 winners who each won about $4,500.00.
