The winning ticket was reportedly sold at a 7-Eleven in Bonita Springs in southwestern Florida. In addition to the big Florida winner, three tickets matched all five white balls to win $1 million, including another one in Florida. The other two tickets were sold in Ohio and Virginia.
One lucky person bought the winning ticket at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday night, just a few hours before the drawing, at a 7-Eleven store in Bonita Springs. The store is one of the last places to stock up on food and drink before hitting the beaches, drawing in both tourists and regulars, according to the Naples Daily News, part of the USA TODAY Network. “Everybody’s very excited,” said Nour Obeissy, franchise owner of the 7-Eleven in Bonita Springs.
“(Regulars) are happy for the store and the Bonita Springs area.” Thursday morning was busy at the Bonita Springs convenience store. One customer waved around a Powerball ticket with a smile, claiming he "won the jackpot," before cashing in his ticket for a $5 prize. Others who stopped by gave a curious look at the posters that declare the location as the seller of the jackpot ticket. The store owner gets a cash prize for selling the ticket, but Obeissy said he’s not thinking about the money.
