A Florida man has claimed a $1,000,000 Powerball prize after matching five numbers on a Quick Pick ticket.
The Florida Lottery announced that Joseph O’Connor, of North Port, claimed a $1 million prize from the POWERBALL® drawing held on March 21, 2022, at the Lottery’s Fort Myers District Office.
The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers but did not match the Powerball number.
O’Connor purchased his $1 million-winning POWERBALL Quick Pick ticket from Publix, located at 1291 South Sumter Boulevard in North Port. The retailer will receive a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the winning POWERBALL ticket.
