ORLANDO, Fla. — Lottery officials said a winning Florida Lotto ticket worth $59 million was sold at a 7-Eleven in Orlando.

One lucky person won the jackpot in Saturday night's Florida Lotto drawing, where the winning numbers were 11, 24, 36, 45, 46 and 47.

Officials said the ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store at the intersection of S. Apopka Vineland Road and Winter Garden Vineland Road.

The winning ticket is worth $59 million, or a lesser amount for a one-time cash payout. The winner has not yet come forward to claim their prize.

It is the largest Florida Lotto jackpot in more than 7 years.  Th last jackpot to exceed this weekend's prize payout was on April 19, 2006, when 2 tickets split an $82 million Lotto jackpot.

Lottery officials said in addition to the jackpot winner, 37 people in Florida matched 5 of the 6 numbers, winning $5,700 each.

3 even and 3 odd numbers, nice! I would play this if the FL lottery created a way to sell tickets to people who live outside Florida. 

It's a futile effort.

            This 7-11 is located right up the street from Downtown Disney and near many of the Disney area hotels.  It is very possible that the winner of this $59 million jackpot is either an out-of-state tourist or even one of the estimated 66,000 people employed by Disney World.  I've been chasing this jackpot since it was at $12 million on its slow crawl ($1m or $2m increases every drawing) to $59 million.  Didn't even win any small prize the entire time. Whata Shame! Disapprove

              Nice......I passed near there on my way back from Bush Gardens to my friends who lives in Port Orange a week in a half ago. Also bought a ticket at a 7 Eleven near there. And I bought a ticket in Hollywood FL on my way 2 & from Miami.

              Jacks, Port Orange no luck anywhere. LOL

                        Well Well Well City Beautiful popped out a jackpot winner.Awesomely great and I guess this win proves my theory wrong that most jackpot winners are in south florida via quick picks purchased at publix

                        Congratulations to the winner..geesh I want a LP member to win a jackpot..then get on here and talk about it with us so we can vicariously be jackpot winners too..that or I find out tomorrow the winner was someone I know and they need my bank account numberROFL

                        I am happy for whoever won, however, it will kind of suck if the winner isn't even a Florida resident and definitely suck if the winner isnt even from this country.I sigh..but regardless I really am happy for the winnerHurray!

                            The lottery offices here in Florida are closed on Saturday and Sunday..it must be nice to live in a state that keep their offices open 7 days a week.Maybe that's why it says the winner hasn't come forward yet.Im guessing the writer lives in a state where it the lottery office stays open 7 days a week. I wouldnt shout to the world I won prematurely(before I was actually able to cash in my ticket). I think that would be kind of dangerous to start telling people you wonCrazy
