Florida LotteryFlorida Lottery: Lotto winner again sold in Royal Palm

For the second time in four months, a winning ticket in a Florida Lotto drawing was purchased in Royal Palm Beach.

This time the jackpot was $40 million and the winner, who will share the prize with two other winning-ticket holders, was bought at BJ's Wholesale Club on State Road 7, Lotto officials said Sunday.

As of Sunday evening, no one had been to the store to pick up a claim form, said store supervisor Colleen O'Hare. The store, which opened about three years ago, sells lottery tickets in its liquor store, O'Hare said.

The winning numbers of Saturday's drawing: 1-4-8-12-45-48. The two other winning tickets were sold in Miami and Pensacola.

The ticket sold at BJ's is the third winner sold in Palm Beach County since September.

In September, a Wellington couple won an estimated $21 million with a lottery ticket they bought in Royal Palm Beach. And last month, a semi-retired accountant from Boynton Beach claimed a $15 million prize with a ticket he bought in suburban Delray Beach.

At least 65 winners have either lived in or bought their tickets in Palm Beach County.

In addition to Saturday's jackpot winners, 265 tickets matched five numbers to win $3,668; 13,898 tickets matched four numbers for $56.50; and 261,685 tickets matched three numbers for $4.
