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.
Diaz bought the ticket at a North Miami Beach Winn-Dixie located at 3805 NE 163 St. The store received $5,000 in commission for selling the ticket, according to the Sentinel.
Ticket sales generated about $58 million in transfers to the Educational Enhancement Trust Fund, lottery officials said.
