PINELLAS COUNTY, FL -

The Florida Lottery announces that Steven Vaughan, 41, of Seminole, claimed the second $1 million POWERBALL® prize from Saturday night's POWERBALL drawing. The winning numbers from the POWERBALL draw were 10-13-14-22-52, and the Powerball was 11. Vaughan's winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Park 74 Sunoco, located at 7091 Park Boulevard in Pinellas Park. The retailer received a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the $1 million POWERBALL ticket.

Vaughan, a regular POWERBALL player, and avid Bill Murray fan, was ecstatic to learn he matched 5-of-5 winning numbers to win $1 million in the May 18 drawing.

"Now that Florida's two $1 million POWERBALL winners have claimed their prizes, the Florida Lottery is looking forward to awarding the jackpot prize; the largest, single-winning ticket in Lottery history," said Secretary Cynthia O'Connell.

This series of POWERBALL rollovers generated more than $50 million to the state's Educational Enhancement Trust Fund. More than $800 million from POWERBALL sales alone has gone to support education since Florida joined POWERBALL in 2009.

One Florida POWERBALL ticket, purchased in Zephyrhills, won the record-high $590.5 million POWERBALL. The jackpot winner has not yet claimed their prize. More than 600,000 Florida players won prizes in Saturday's draw, bringing Florida's total POWERBALL winnings to more than $1 billion. This drawing also produced Florida's 100th POWERBALL millionaire since Florida joined in 2009.

The multi-state lottery game is sold in Florida and 43 other states and districts across the United States. POWERBALL is a product of the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL). National POWERBALL drawings are broadcast live, in high-definition, from the Florida Lottery's state of the art draw studio in Tallahassee at 10:59 p.m. ET on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Winning numbers are available on the Lottery website, at retailers statewide and by phone at (850) 921-PLAY.
