Biggest Powerball Lottery jackpot has yet to be claimed

No big winner here in California, but small Florida city is anxious to learn jackpot winner

ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla. - It will be an anxious wait for a small Florida city to find out who won the biggest Powerball jackpot in history.
The winning ticket worth $590.5 million was bought sometime late last week at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills (ZEH-fur-hills), about 30 miles northeast of Tampa.
Whoever has the ticket hadn't come forward as of Sunday afternoon.
It could be a while: The winner has 60 days to claim the lump sum amount from the lottery's Tallahassee office.
Lottery officials say the winner will probably take the time to craft a plan with attorneys or accountants before coming forward.
The news had the town of about 13,000 people buzzing over who might know the winner.

California Lottery officials say two people are holding winning lottery tickets worth $2,309,228 after their Powerball tickets matched five of six winning numbers.
Officials say one of the winning tickets was sold at a 7-Eleven convenience store in San Jose, while the other was sold at a 7-Eleven in Taft.
National lottery officials say one ticket bearing all six winning numbers was sold in Florida, with the winning ticket worth an estimated $590.5 million - the highest Powerball jackpot in history.

Lottery officials say the winning numbers in the historic Powerball jackpot are: 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and Powerball 11.
