ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. (AP) — It will be an anxious wait for a small Florida city to find out who won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history.
The winning ticket worth $590.5 million was bought sometime late last week at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills (ZEH-fur-hills), about 30 miles northeast of Tampa.
Whoever has the ticket hadn’t come forward as of Sunday afternoon.
It could be a while: The winner has 60 days to claim the lump sum amount from the lottery’s Tallahassee office.
Lottery officials say the winner will probably take the time to craft a plan with attorneys or accountants before coming forward.
The news had the town of about 13,000 people buzzing over who might know the winner.
