A San Jose liquor store sold a winning Fantasy 5 lottery ticket Wednesday, according to California Lottery officials.

Williams Liquor at 1064 Leigh Ave. sold the winning ticket that matched all five numbers -- 15, 30, 21, 11 and 19 -- giving the winning player a $318,673 reward, lottery officials said.

The top prize of Fantasy 5, a California Lottery game since 1992, starts at about $55,000 and increases each day until a winning ticket, matching all five numbers, is purchased, lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said.

The ticket purchased at Williams Liquor was bought in the fourth day of the game, dating back to July 22, Traverso said.

The winner has 180 days to claim the prize money, he said.
