Florida Lotto, Mega Millions, and Powerball Jackpots Climb Higher
Surprisingly, only one player won one of the most sought after lottery jackpots this week so far. Florida’s Fantasy 5 had one winner who will pick up a check of $237,982.04 – before taxes of course.
There were plenty of smaller Powerball, Mega Millions, and Florida Lotto prizes won though. As “lottery fever” continues to grip hopeful millionaires, jackpots generally skyrocket exponentially, especially when they go over $100,000,000.
