Jacksonville man wins $1M in Powerball drawing
38-year-old splits money with friend
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A 38-year-old Jacksonville man claimed a $1 million Powerball prize from Saturday night's drawing and split his winnings with a friend.
The other $1 million winning ticket from Saturday's drawing, sold in Pinellas Park, has not yet been claimed. The winning numbers from the Powerball draw were 10-13-14-22-52, and the Powerball was 11.
Jeffery Geeting's winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Winn-Dixie, located at 12777 Atlantic Blvd. in Jacksonville. The retailer received a $1,000 bonus commission for selling the $1 million 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, Jeffery 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.
One Florida Powerball ticket, purchased in Zephyrhills, won the record-high $590.5 million Powerball. The jackpot winner has not yet claimed their prize.
