Florida Player Matches Five on POWERBALL® at 7- Eleven $2 MILLION WIN

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Lottery announces that James Dippold, of Vero Beach, claimed a $2 million prize from the POWERBALL® drawing held on August 26, 2020, using a secured drop box located at Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee. The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers but did not match the Powerball number.

Dippold purchased his winning ticket from 7-Eleven, located at 1400 Highway A1A in Vero Beach. The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the winning POWERBALL ticket.

The next POWERBALL drawing will be held Saturday, September 12, at 10:59 p.m. ET with an estimated $85 million jackpot. National POWERBALL drawings are broadcast live, in high-definition, from the Florida Lottery’s state of the art draw studio in Tallahassee. Florida Lottery game drawings are broadcast on 17 carrier stations throughout the state. Drawings are also available for viewing on the Florida Lottery website. Winning numbers are available on the Lottery website, at retailers statewide and by phone at (850) 921-PLAY.

To help protect employees and players during the COVID-19 outbreak, Florida Lottery Headquarters and district offices remain closed to the public until further notice. Players who have winning tickets are encouraged to utilize the Lottery’s secured drop box located at each district office or mail tickets to Florida Lottery Headquarters or their nearest district office. All claim deadlines have been extended, giving players the option to hold on to winning tickets and wait to claim any prizes until Lottery offices reopen to the public.
