The winning ticket was sold at Winn-Dixie, located at 805 East Martin Luther King Boulevard in Tampa. Players who may have purchased a FANTASY 5 ticket at this retail location are encouraged to check their tickets from the September 11, 2018 drawing.
While any Florida Lottery retailer can validate the winning ticket, the FANTASY 5 top prize must be claimed at a Florida Lottery District Office or at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

FANTASY 5 is a pari-mutuel game in which players win the top prize by matching 5-of-5 winning numbers drawn in any order. Additionally, players win cash prizes or a free Quick Pick ticket by matching two, three or four of the numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. If there is no top prize winner, the money in the top prize pool rolls down and is shared among players who match 4-of-5 or 3-of-5 winning numbers.
Since the game's inception, more than 849 million FANTASY 5 and FANTASY 5 with EZmatch winners have won more than $4.5 billion in prizes. Of these, more than 52,000 players have won top prizes totaling more than $2.4 billion.
