As if being in Key West isn't enough reason to party, here's another for one Florida Lotto player: A $17 million winning ticket.
After a long dry spell, the Florida Lotto yielded a winner Saturday night, with the single ticket being sold at Publix, 3316 N. Roosevelt Blvd., Key West. The numbers were 8-21-26-27-30-40. Whether the player was a local or some tourist stopping in for supplies will surface eventually, when the winner claims the loot in Tallahassee.
Meanwhile, Powerball is up back up to about $70 million for Wednesday night's drawing. The numbers were 15-16-46-50-58, with a Powerball of 29.
Fantasy 5 had three winners, each taking in $94,037.57. The numbers were 11-26-33-34-36 and the tickets were sold at: Publix 638, 10142 W Indiantown Road, Jupiter; Sweetbay, 6929 US Highway 301 South, Riverview; and Circle K, 91 W State Road 436, Altamonte Springs.
