The good news is that someone in Florida won a $286 million Powerball jackpot this weekend.

The bad news for us in South Florida — it probably wasn’t you.

Florida Lottery revealed Monday that the winning ticket from Saturday’s $286 million drawing in the multistate game was purchased at a Circle K in Jacksonville. The store is at 721 Chaffee Road South, to be exact.

The winning numbers were 44-52-54-64-69 and the Powerball was 26. The Circle K that sold the ticket will collect a $100,000 bonus commission.

The lucky winner hit those numbers on a quick pick and will become Florida’s 16th Powerball jackpot winner.

Lottery officials say that Powerball jackpot winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize, but to take the lump sum they must file a claim within 60 days.

In March, a 23-year-old Florida man won a $235 million Powerball jackpot. He took home a lump-sum payment of more than $160 million.
