$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold In Molino

March 29, 2013

Someone who purchased a Powerball ticket in Molino for Wednesday’s drawing won $1 million.

The Florida Lottery confirmed Friday morning that one ticket sold for Wednesday night’s Powerball draw matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number itself.

The winning Quick Pick ticket was sold at Tom Thumb at Highway 29 and Highway 97 in Molino. The winning numbers from Wednesday night’s Powerball draw were 43-48-07-37-52, and the Powerball was 16.  The Powerball jackpot rolled, resulting in a $50 million jackpot for the Saturday, March 30 drawing.

More than 47,000 Florida players won between $4 and $10,000 in the Wednesday, March 27, Powerball draw.  The multi-state lottery game is sold in Florida and 43 other states and districts across the United States.

    whoever it is I know they don’t owe child support or any back taxes, yALL just let the man or woman enjoy their winnings

    I work for Tom Thumb. The cashier does not get any money from the winning ticket. Some winners will give the cashier that sold the ticket some money. Most give about 10%. But it is usually just a handful that does that.

    Wouldn’t ‘t you know that little hole in the wall would be put on the map someday. It probably doesn’t matter who won it,they need it. Good luck to them.

    Wow! That hits close to home. I would be afraid of winning the lottery – paying the taxes – When all is said and done I’d probably owe the gov’t money. Ha Ha but I’m gonna keep trying anyway…

    Yeah, the clerk gets something. The clerk gets their usual pay per hour….for doing their job.

    If he owes back child support I hope they get a year in advance. With DNA he can’t deny it and he should have to pay for it to be raised, not the system.

  13. Nancy on March 29th, 2013 4:13 pm

    Well….by the time they get taxed and hopefully don’t owe the IRS or back
    child support, they may come out with a little bit! Congratulations!

  14. who on March 29th, 2013 4:00 pm

    i know the store gets a portion of this money, but what about the clerk that sold the ticket, do they get anything?

  15. :) on March 29th, 2013 3:46 pm

    I know who it is. . . . . .congratulations!!!

  16. Tina on March 29th, 2013 1:58 pm

    Well, it wasn’t me but congratulations to the winner :)

    CORRECTION – “give me THE money”

  18. Danny Hall on March 29th, 2013 1:00 pm

    The winner says , “oh , I don’t know if I can count that high” – give me the money & I’ll show you how to count it ! !
