$3.75 Million Florida Lotto Jackpot Ticket Sold at Publix in West Palm BeachSource: Google Street View

Luck was in the air over the weekend for Florida Lotto players, especially for one ticket holder who knocked it out of the park with a nearly $4 million windfall. According to a report from NBC Miami, a winning ticket for the Florida Lotto, worth a whopping $3.75 million, was purchased at a Publix along Northlake Boulevard in West Palm Beach.

The fortuitous ticket was one of several bought at Publix stores that turned out to be winners over the weekend. In fact, all four winners in Saturday's drawing snagged their lucky entries from the supermarket chain. However, yesterday it was a different story, with only one winner, and this time the ticket wasn't sold by Publix, as detailed by the Palm Beach Post.

The $3.75 million winner has yet to step forward, but the clock is ticking. Winners have 180 days to claim their prize, but if they're looking to pocket the cash all at once, that window shrinks to a mere 60 days. Meanwhile, the Florida Lotto jackpot has been reset to $1 million, with eyes now turning to the next drawing scheduled for Wednesday.

Adding to the excitement, the Powerball jackpot continues to balloon, hitting $376 million for Saturday's drawing. With the apparent winning streak at Publix, future lottery participants might just be considering where to buy their next ticket a little more carefully. No doubt, the recent winners are now relishing in the life-changing impact a simple lottery ticket can have – perhaps, channeling their inner millionaires as they contemplate their newfound financial freedom.
