The ticket worth $237,264 was sold at Civic Center Market, a liquor store on the corner of Ninth and Market streets in the city’s Mid-Market neighborhood. It matched all five numbers — 38, 33, 2, 32 and 35.

Fantasy 5 winning numbers are drawn daily, with top prizes starting at $50,000 and increasing until a win is drawn.

Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes and are encouraged to sign the back of their tickets and keep them in a safe place.

Winners should contact lottery officials or visit their local lotter district office as soon as possible.
