Anticipation is building among residents of the small town of Zephyrhills, just outside of Tampa, as to who won the nearly half a billion dollar Powerball jackpot.
A tiny Florida town known for spring water and skydiving was abuzz with speculation on Sunday.
It’s all about the odds, and one lone ticket in Florida has beaten them all by matching each of the numbers drawn for the highest Powerball jackpot in history at an estimated $590.5 million, lottery officials said Sunday.
Imagine the millions of things one could do with an extra $600 million dollars. It’s possible, that by the end of the night, that dream for one lucky Powerball winner may become a reality.
What could you do with $600 million? The fiscally intoxicating thought may turn into a reality for someone on Saturday when the next Powerball drawing is held.
You can pretty much bet that lottery machines across the state are going to smoking over the next few days.
If you like to plunk down a couple of bucks every week on your favorite lottery game, Wednesday could present you with a couple of options.
On the day of a $360 million dollar Powerball drawing, the Florida Lottery will start selling tickets to the popular Mega Millions lottery game.
Florida residents who like to drop of a couple of bucks each week in hopes of hitting it big in the Florida Lotto or multi-state Powerball will have a new game to wager on beginning this week.
Florida Lotto and Powerball players are hoping they’ll have better luck this Wednesday to win lots of cash as the jackpots for both games have rolled over.
