Jacksonville man scores $1M in Powerball

Jeffery Geeting, 38, of Jacksonville, claimed a $1 million Powerball® prize from Saturday night’s Powerball 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. 

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 ticket.

 Geeting and a friend purchased $20 each of 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.
