Frederick Walker is getting $2 million for his portion of the prize after he says he tried his luck after never having played the Florida Lottery.

“I got to the store, and there was already a completed play slip at the playstation,” said Walker.

He said he figured those numbers were as good as any so he took the play slip up to the counter and purchased his ticket at Sav-A-Ton, located at 199 North Country Club Road in Lake Mary.

The winning Powerball numbers were pulled Wednesday evening.

Walker’s winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers but did not match the Powerball number. He had added Power Play® to his ticket for $1, which multiplied his prize from $1 million to $2 million.

Walker wasn’t the only one taking home a piece of the jackpot.

Three players, including one in Florida, had winning tickets plus the Powerball number. The other two winning tickets were sold in California and Tennessee.
