The longest dry spell in Florida Lotto history is over: One winning ticket, with the numbers 11-24-36-45-46-47 hit for $59 million Saturday night.
Alas, it was sold in central Florida. The vendor was 7-Eleven, 12298 Apopka-Vineland Road, Orlando, and it was a quick pick.
The lotto had not produced a winner since April 20, the longest non-jackpot streak since the game began in 1988. Because the state now has other options for players -- Powerball and MegaMillions -- the drought, while building up the jackpot, came nowhere near the all-time record for winning loot.
That's $106.5 million, set back in 1990.
Powerball, meanwhile, did grow again, and is up to $116 million. No one had 12-17-25-45-59, with a Powerball of 19.
