With the Powerball jackpot now crossing $800 million dollars we’re getting into some serious money. As you go to get your Powerball tickets, note that Saturday night’s drawing will be for the second largest Powerball drawing ever. The largest was $1.586 Billion. That happened on January 13th , 2016. The Powerball jackpot was split between three winning tickets. California, Tennessee, and one right here in Florida. That lucky ticket was bought at a Publix on Melbourne Beach. So a big jackpot in Florida would not be a new thing. If we can make this happen it’d be the second one this month.
A $494 million Mega Millions winning ticket was a Quick Pick ticket, purchased at 7-Eleven, located at 2980 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers. They’ll share the jackpot with someone in California. So, someone bought that ticket shortly after Hurricane Ian wrecked the town. What an amazing twist of fortune. The winner hasn’t come forward yet. Congratulations to them.
Powerball is where the attention is now. And the odds of winning here in Florida. Indiana has had the most Powerball jackpot winners with 39. That represents 9.8% of all the winners. So nearly one in 10 Powerball winners are in Indiana. 16 Powerball jackpot winners have been in Florida. That’s 4% of the total winners. Let’s break down the Florida winning Powerball jackpots, when, and where the ticket was sold. Then it’s on you to get what you hope are winning Powerball Tickets.
