LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Did anyone win Powerball May 18, 2013 results last night, what were the Powerball winning numbers last night, and is the Powerball winner from Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, Florida? Had no one picked the Powerball May 18, 2013 winning numbers, the draw would have risen to a near billion dollars for this week. But when the numbers were announced last night, and consumers didn’t have the numbers, the immediate reaction was “did anyone win Powerball tonight”. This morning, Powerball officials told news that someone did pick the Powerball May 18, 2013 winning numbers. That “someone” is a single, ticket holder, shockingly.
Powerball officials confirm to news that, not dozens, not five, but only one person will walk away with the largest payout in U.S. history. Among Powerball and Mega Millions historic draws, the largest single payout won by an individual previously was the take from the Mega Millions draw of March 2012 that was shared by multiple persons.
So who won the Powerball winning numbers last night? Florida Lottery executive Cindy O’Connell tells news that the there was a single ticket sold a Publix Supermarket in Zephyrhills, Florida. The person correctly picked the winning numbers of 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and a Powerball of 11.
Officials had no other details about the Publix customer. Officials also told news that the final draw Saturday was slightly lower that initially estimated. It was initially believed in excess of $600 million. That number is now closer to $590.5 million.
Meantime, Publix has yet to comment to news about the matter. Officials would not tell news if the Publix customer had bought several tickets during their visit or a single ticket. The person with the winning ticket, for now, has not come forward.
