One ticket in Florida matched all five white balls and doubled the prize to $2 million, because the ticket included the Power Play option for an additional $1. He purchased the winning ticket at Hy-Vee Gas at 828 East 23rd Street in Fremont and selected the numbers based on the birthday of family members, according to the press release.

The estimated jackpot is $448 million.

A jackpot victor will match numbers on all five white balls and the Powerball.

The last victor to claim a Powerball prize was a man from Nebraska.

A pair of Wisconsin ticket holders each won $50,000 in the latest Powerball drawing. The jackpot prize will be shared among winners in all POWERBALL states.

Mike Weirsky, who won $273 million in a drawing last week, initially forgot the jackpot ticket at the QuickChek.
