"It feels pretty good," Hewitt said.
According to Hewitt, he began playing Fantasy 5 three months ago. "I randomly picked numbers and kept playing them," he said, adding that his lucky win comes at a great time.
"I'm a cancer patient," he said. "I just finished radiation. I have a lot of medical bills to pay off. I'm going to take care of all the bills and then sit down and plan what else to do."
Exxon at Papermill, 108 E. Crogan St., in Lawrenceville sold the winning ticket.
Winning numbers for the drawing were 11-13-16-23-26.
