(Cleveland)- Lottery lightning has struck again in Florida.

The single winning Powerball ticket for a jackpot worth an estimated $590.5 million was sold at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills.

It's the sixth winning Powerball ticket sold in the state and this time it was for the biggest Powerball jackpot anywhere.

The winning numbers are 10, 13, 14, 22, 52 and powerball 11.

A few people WTAM talked with in downtown Cleveland  struggled to explain exactly what they would do with the money. There was the usual answers, a new house or vacation, but one man said he would save his money and make it last for generations.

The chances of winning was 1 in 175.2 million.

That hasn't deterred people across Powerball-playing states like Ohio - from lining up at gas stations and convenience stores Saturday for their chance at striking it filthy rich.

The latest jackpot is the world's second largest overall, just behind a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot in March 2012.
