One Winning Ticket Sold For Record Powerball Jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa (May 19, 2013)--One winning ticket was sold in Florida for a record Powerball jackpot of more than $590 million,
Terry Rich, a lottery official in Iowa, confirmed Sunday.

Rich said Florida lottery officials are expected to announce further details about the ticket.

The ticket was purchased at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla.

The cash value of the ticket is nearly $377 million.

Zephyrhills is a small city in Pasco County, about 30 miles northeast of downtown Tampa.

Once a farm town, it's now known for skydiving and retiree mobile home parks and is also home to Zephyrhills bottled water.

Powerball.com said the winner sold in Florida means the current estimated jackpot resets at $40 million or $25.1 million cash value.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 10, 13, 14, 22, and 52, and the Powerball was 11.

With four of every five possible combinations of Powerball numbers in play, someone was almost certain to win the game's highest jackpot, although chances of winning remained astronomically low at 1 in 175.2 million.
