The national frenzy for the second highest Powerball jackpot ever is finally over, according to the people who know these things. A Florida Lottery official confirmed to NBC News that the only winning ticket was sold at a Publix store in Zephyrhills. While no one has come to claim their $590 million just yet — perhaps they’re avoiding the office pool? — it is worth noting that there have now been six Powerball winners who hail from the great state of voter fraud, geriatric showgirls, and all that other stuff.
