The Florida Lottery announces that Joseph Brelsford, of St. Petersburg, claimed a $2 million prize from the POWERBALL® drawing held on March 3, 2018. The winning Quick Pick ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers, but did not match the Powerball.
Brelsford purchased the winning ticket from Sunoco, located at 6231 Haines Road North in St. Petersburg. The retailer will receive a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the winning POWERBALL ticket.
