An 84-year-old woman from Zephyrhills has claimed the recent $590 million Powerball jackpot, according to the Florida Lottery.
She was identified as Gloria C. Mackenzie and was the sole winner.
The winning ticket was sold at a Publix in Zephyrhills.
She was not present when the Florida Lottery held a news conference to announce her name.
She will receive $370,896,780 million in a lump sum before taxes.
Mackenzie said she bought the ticket as a single ticket, even though she bought 4 other tickets before the drawing.
While in line at Publix, she told the Florida Lottery, another player allowed her to go ahead in line to purchase the winning quick pick ticket.
She did not speak to reporters outside lottery headquarters, leaving in a silver Ford Focus with family members.
