SANFORD MAN CLAIMS $2 MILLION POWERBALL® PRIZE

TALLAHASSEE - The Florida Lottery announces that Frederick Walker, 19, of Sanford, claimed a $2 million prize from the POWERBALL® drawing held on Wednesday, January 13, 2016. The winning ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Powerball. Walker added Power Play® to his ticket for $1, which multiplied his prize from $1 million to $2 million.

According to Walker, he had never purchased a lottery ticket before. "When I heard about the billion dollar POWERBALL jackpot, I decided to try my luck and buy a ticket," said Walker. 'I got to the store, and there was already a completed play slip at the playstation." Not being familiar with lottery games, Walker figured those numbers were as good as any so he took that play slip up to the counter and purchased his ticket. 'How lucky that the first time I played, I won!"

The winning ticket was purchased at Sav-A-Ton, located at 199 North Country Club Road in Lake Mary. The retailer received a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the winning POWERBALL ticket. This series of POWERBALL jackpot rollovers, which began on November 7, 2015, has generated more than $114.6 million for the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund which is more than any other POWERBALL rollover series since the Florida Lottery joined the game in 2009.

The next POWERBALL drawing will be held Saturday, January 16, at 10:59 p.m. ET with an estimated $40 million jackpot. National POWERBALL drawings are broadcast live, in high-definition, from the Florida Lottery's state of the art draw studio in Tallahassee. Florida Lottery game 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.
