The Florida Lottery announces that Jeffrey Geeting, 38, of Jacksonville, claimed a $1 million POWERBALL® prize from Saturday night's POWERBALL drawing and split his winnings with a friend. Geeting's winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Winn-Dixie, located at 12777 Atlantic Boulevard in Jacksonville. The retailer received a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the $1 million POWERBALL ticket.
The two friends purchased $20 each of POWERBALL tickets for Saturday night's draw, pledging to share with each other should either one win. On Sunday morning they each checked their tickets. While his friend did not match any numbers, Jeffrey matched 5-of-5 numbers to win $1 million, and kept his promise to share. "We are thrilled to have a Jacksonville player be among the winners from this record Powerball drawing," said Secretary Cynthia O'Connell.
