Florida has sold its second winning Powerball ticket in a week, but the lucky winner will have to share his $50 million prize with ticket buyers in two other states. Louisiana and Delaware also sold winning tickets, just one week after a single winner took home a $590 million Powerball jackpot.
Each Powerball winner from Saturday's drawing will receive one-third of the $50 million jackpot, the Associated Press reports. Lottery officials claim that the winning tickets were sold in New Orleans, and Tampa, Fla., though it remains unclear where the ticket was sold in Delaware.
Philly.com reports that the sizable prize will amount to about $31 million after taxes, split among the three winners. The winning numbers of Saturday’s Powerball drawing were 2, 6, 19, 21, and 27, with a Powerball of 25.
During last Saturday’s Powerball drawing, a winning ticket sold at a Publix supermarket north of Tampa won $590.5 million over 20 years, or a cash prize estimated at $376.9 million. The massive payout was large enough to set a Powerball record, and was Florida’s seventh share of a Powerball jackpot since 2009, Philly.com reports.
The jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing has been reset to an estimated $40 million annuity, or $24.9 million in cash. The drawing will be held on March 29 at 10:59 p.m. EDT.
