The winning ticket was sold by the Massachusetts Lottery.

"While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning quick-pick ticket", Mackenzie said.

The store that sold the winning ticket will get $50,000 and the owners of Handy Variety will still get $10,000 for selling that million dollar ticket. "Somebody had to win and it just happened to be our chain".

The other $1 million Florida tickets were purchased in Miami Beach at a 7-Eleven and in Miami at a Publix.

"A little sad now", Kaur said when asked for her reaction, "its OK, it's still something".

Michael Sweeney, the lottery's executive director, said the victor would be introduced at 1 p.m.at lottery headquarters.

A mad rush for tickets had propelled the bonanza up from an originally announced US$650 million as lines formed out of shopping malls and grocery stores. She said she chose "four" as her Powerball number because she, her mom, stepdad and a friend go out to dinner on Friday nights and play Keno. The couple was planning to use the $50,000 payout to start a college fund for their children, she said.

While the big victor in Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot wasn't from MI, someone who purchased their ticket at Melvindale store, 17973 Allen Road, walked away with a $1 million prize for matching the first five numbers.
