One Powerball ticket sold in a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, Florida is worth $590.5 million, the largest single-ticket jackpot in U.S. history.

Some of the consolation prizes from Saturday’s drawing are tickets worth $2 million each, sold in New York state and South Carolina. Thirty-three people in New York and 17 other states win a cool $1 million. Six of them were sold in New York.

Powerball tickets are sold in 43 states, including Louisiana, plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

One of the managers at the Publix supermarket where the big winning ticket was sold said, “We’re kind of excited that someone bought the ticket here, but we still have work to do.”

The winner can claim a lump sum of more than $376.9 million.

“We don’t expect anyone to come forward right away,” said David Bishop, deputy secretary of the Florida Lottery. “The winner may not even know they have the winning ticket yet. And if they are smart, they are going to see an attorney and talk to an accountant first.”
