A Miami man became the second Florida player to claim a $2 million prize from Wednesday’s record Powerball jackpot, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.

Javier Diaz, 49, had all five white numbers but not the correct Powerball number, missing out on a larger portion of the $587.5 million. But his prize did double because he played with the lottery’s Power Play feature, the newspaper reported.
