If you bought a Powerball ticket in Apollo Beach last week, you might want to go grab it to check your numbers. Channel 8 reports that someone is a millionaire after buying a ticket at the Publix in Apollo Beach at 5052 North on US-41. Winning $1 million must feel amazing.  But as great as that must feel, there’s got to be a sense of “what if” because had they just had one more number right, that all important red Powerball, they would have been the sole winner of $1.6 billion.  The player got all 5 numbers right – but it was not picking the right Powerball number that made all the difference.

If you were curious, the Apollo Beach player didn’t even pick those winning numbers. It was a machine pick! So far no word on if the winner has come forward.

Since there was no winner, the jackpot tonight is expected to be around $1.9 billion. It’s the largest jackpot in Powerball history. The drawing happens tonight at 11:59PM. [Source: Channel 8]
