The winning Powerball numbers drawn late Saturday were 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 with Powerball number 11.
Powerball’s website said one winner was sold in Florida a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, a suburb of Tampa.
The jackpot of the 43-state lottery game surged ahead of the drawing and had been estimated at $600 million — the second-largest pot in U.S. lottery history. Powerball officials later revised that to more than $590 million
Still, that grand prize, accumulated after two months of drawings, surpassed the previous record Powerball payoff of $587.5 million, set in November 2012. That was split by two winners.
The largest jackpot in U.S. history stands at $656 million, won in the Mega Millions lottery of March 2012. That prize was split between winners in Maryland, Kansas and Illinois.
