Fla Powerball Winners Surface…not the big ones

The Florida Lottery announces that Jeffrey Geeting, 38, of Jacksonville, claimed a $1 million POWERBALL® prize from Saturday night's POWERBALL drawing and split his winnings with a friend.

The two friends purchased $20 each of POWERBALL tickets for Saturday night's draw, pledging to share with each other should either one win. On Sunday morning they each checked their tickets. While his friend did not match any numbers, Jeffrey matched 5-of-5 numbers to win $1 million, and kept his promise to share. "We are thrilled to have a Jacksonville player be among the winners from this record Powerball drawing," said Secretary Cynthia O'Connell.

The Florida Lottery also announced that Steven Vaughan, 41, of Seminole, claimed the second $1 million POWERBALL® prize from Saturday night's POWERBALL drawing.
Vaughan, a regular POWERBALL player, and avid Bill Murray fan, was ecstatic to learn he matched 5-of-5 winning numbers to win $1 million in the May 18 drawing.
"Now that Florida's two $1 million POWERBALL winners have claimed their prizes, the Florida Lottery is looking forward to awarding the jackpot prize; the largest, single-winning ticket in Lottery history," said Secretary Cynthia O'Connell.

One Florida POWERBALL ticket, purchased in Zephyrhills, won the record-high $590.5 million Powerball jackpot
