HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - One person from Hollywood is the lucky winner of the Florida Lottery's $47 million jackpot.

The winning ticket was purchased at the Stop N' Shop at 2960 Taft St., and the store will receive $180,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The store's owner, who goes by Morrocco, said Thursday morning his store's lottery sales have skyrocketed.

Lottery officials haven't announced when the winning ticket was sold, but Morrocco said he just bought the convenience store two months ago; an investment that's already paying off.

"I'm really in the process of building the store right now, and this happened," said Morrocco. "So this definitely is a good luck sign to proceed, go ahead, and pop it off baby."

A total of 28 tickets matched five numbers to win $4,602 each; 1,631 tickets matched four numbers for $67.50 each; and 32,322 tickets matched three numbers for $5 each.

The winning Florida Lotto numbers selected Wednesday: 10-12-23-34-38-53.
