Florida Lottery Player Just One Number Away From Jackpot But Still Won $1 Million in Powerball

Florida Lottery Player Won $1 Million in Powerball on Saturday Night

A ticket sold at a Publix supermarket in Land O’ Lakes matched five out of the six winning numbers in Saturday night’s drawing, securing a cool $1 million prize.

The winning numbers for Saturday, March 23rd, were 6, 23, 25, 34, 51, and the Powerball number was 3. While no ticket across the nation matched all six numbers, the Florida player narrowly missed the jackpot but can still enjoy a significant financial boost.

This near miss wasn’t an isolated incident. Tickets sold in California, Indiana, Texas, and Washington also matched five numbers, proving that even a close call in the Powerball can result in a substantial reward.

The lack of a jackpot winner means the grand prize continues to climb, reaching a staggering $800 million for Monday’s drawing. The anticipation for this historic jackpot is sure to be electric!

Claiming Your Prize:

For Florida residents who may have won smaller prizes, the claiming process is straightforward. Prizes under $600 can be redeemed at any Florida Lottery retailer. However, for prizes exceeding $600, winners must visit the lottery headquarters, and district offices, or mail their tickets for claim processing.

Remember, all winners claiming prizes over $600 must complete a claim form and present a valid government-issued photo ID along with a social security card. Don’t forget – Florida law mandates that draw game prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing date. If you’re aiming for the cash option, claim your prize within the first 60 days to secure that payout method.
