An advertising board shows the record jackpot of the Powerball US lottery with a record jackpot of 600 million US Dollars in a shop in downtown Washington, DC on May 17, 2013.  In a statement, the Iowa state lottery agency said the Pawerball jackpot -- played in 43 states -- now is "the largest in the 21-year history of the game" as well as the second-largest in world lottery history.

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.
