ST. PETERSBURG WOMAN CLAIMS $13 MILLION
FLORIDA LOTTO® JACKPOT

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Joanne Powell, of St. Petersburg, claimed the $13 million FLORIDA LOTTO® jackpot from the drawing held on March 15, 2017.

"My husband and I have been buying our FLORIDA LOTTO tickets at the same Publix since 2002," Powell said. "We heard they had recently sold a winning ticket, and checked the numbers in the newspaper while out to breakfast. We couldn't believe our luck when we discovered the winning numbers matched our ticket!"

Powell chose to receive the winnings as a one-time, lump-sum payment of $8,675,247.98. The jackpot-winning FLORIDA LOTTO Quick Pick ticket was purchased from Publix, located at 5577 Park Street North in St. Petersburg. The retailer received a bonus commission of $65,000 for selling the jackpot-winning FLORIDA LOTTO ticket. Total ticket sales for this jackpot generated more than $11 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund (EETF).

The next FLORIDA LOTTO drawing will be held Wednesday, April 5, 2017, at 11:15 p.m. ET, with a $7 million jackpot. FLORIDA LOTTO 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.
