€459m lotto winner at large

A SMALL Florida town is excitedly waiting to find out which of its citizens has won an enormous €459m lottery.

The winning Powerball ticket, worth $590m, was bought last week at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills, population 13,000, which lies about 30 miles from Tampa.

The winner has still to come forward and they have 60 days to claim the lump sum from the lottery's Tallahassee office.

Lottery officials say the winner will probably take the time to craft a plan with lawyers or accountants before claiming the prize.
