A ticket sold at a Jacksonville Publix that matched five numbers but not the Powerball number is worth $1 million.
Florida Lottery officials say the ticket was sold at the grocery at the corner of Beach and Kernan boulevards.
The $588 million jackpot will be spit between tickets sold. Lottery officials said Thursday that the winning tickets matching all six numbers were sold at a convenience store in suburban Phoenix and a gas station just off Interstate 29 in a small northwestern Missouri town. Neither ticket holder had come forward.
"Wish it was me," said Linda Sims, who didn't win anything on PowerBall, but did match four numbers on her Florida Lotto ticket. "Yes, I just won $384. She just gave it to me."
Lottery officials say the Jacksonville ticket is one of five sold in the state that won at least $1 million from Wednesday night's Powerball drawing. The other tickets were sold in Haines City, Marianna, Miami and Port St. Lucie.
The names of the winners were not immediately available. The stores where the winning tickets were sold will each receive $1,000.
