Florida lottery waiting for Powerball winner to come forward

There is only one winning ticket for the richest-ever Powerball jackpot, but no one knows yet who has it.

The winning ticket to the $590.5 million jackpot was sold at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla., a suburb of Tampa.  The winning numbers from last Saturday’s drawing were: 10, 13, 14, 22 and 52, with a Powerball number of 11.

Whoever holds the winning ticket has 60 days to clam the prize.

The winner can take an immediate cash payout of $377 million after taxes, or a smaller payout now followed by annual payouts over the next 29 years.

The previous record Powerball jackpot was $587.5 million in November 2012.

The largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history was the Mega Millions prize of $656 million in March 2012.  That prize was split among winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.
