The owner of the power ball winning ticket has residence in the humble town of Zephyrhills, Florida.
“I can’t believe it. It’s shocking,” Sara Jeltis told ABC News Radio. “Out of the whole country, this Publix in little Zephyrhills would be the winner.”
The winning Powerball ticket, worth $590.5 million, was purchased at a Publix supermarket in a town of a little over 13,000 people.
After the winning ticket is turned in, the winner’s name, age and hometown will be made public under state law.
“Who ever it is, I will be glad to see if we know them or anything like that,” Brian Miller said, according to ABC News Radio.
Saturday’s winning numbers were 10, 13, 14, 22, 52, and a Powerball of 11.
Publix spokeswoman Maria Brous said there are a lot of rumors about who won, but the store doesn’t know.
“We’re excited for the winner or winners,” Brous told The Associated Press. “We don’t promote or endorse the lottery. We offer it as a convenience.”
