A small Florida town is excitedly waiting to find out which of its citizens has won an enormous £388.6 million lottery.

The winning Powerball ticket, worth 590.5 million in dollars, was bought late 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, but it could take a while: They have 60 days to claim the lump sum amount 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.
