Winning $1M Powerball ticket sold in Florida; $700M jackpot still up for grabs

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — One person in Florida is waking up $1 million richer after Wednesday night’s Powerball drawing.

The winning numbers were: 31, 43, 58, 59, 66, and a Powerball of 09.

According to the Powerball website, someone in Florida bought a ticket that matched all five white ball numbers, but did not match the final red ball, which was needed to win the $653 million jackpot. The odds of matching all five white balls is about one in 11.7 million.

The Floridian will take home the third place prize – if they added the “Power Play” option when purchasing the ticket, their winnings would have doubled to $2 million. There is no word yet on who took home the $1 million prize in Florida or where they bought their winning ticket.

With no winner, the Jackpot rises to $700 million ahead of the next drawing on Saturday, Feb. 4. Tickets must be purchased before 10 p.m. on that date to be eligible.

If a winning ticket is drawn on Saturday, the jackpot would be the fifth largest in the game’s history. The 10 largest jackpots in Powerball history are:

  1. $2.04 billion – Nov. 7, 2022; California
  2. $1.586 billion – Jan. 13, 2016; California, Florida, and Tennessee
