Kenneth Morgan, of Jacksonville, was tidying up his home this past weekend when he just happened to stumble upon a Powerball ticket from April that was worth $1 million.
“I was cleaning the house on the Fourth of July when I found the Powerball ticket in a drawer,” Morgan, 54, told Florida Lottery officials. “I checked the numbers and discovered it was a $1 million winner. I’m still in shock!”
Morgan won his prize from the April 17 drawing of the multistate lottery game, matching all five white-ball numbers but not the Powerball jackpot number.
His ticket was a quick pick bought at a Publix liquor store on Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville, which gets a $1,000 bonus commission.
