JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- While one lucky person is enjoying a HUGE windfall from winning the Powerball drawing Saturday night, the rest of us are lottery losers, and throwing those tickets away.
Dakari Jackson bought flowers for his mom, "Just because," he said.
Unfortunately it wasn't because she won the Powerball jackpot.
"She only plays when it's really high," he said.
She bought a ticket at a Publix in Jacksonville for the drawing Saturday but unfortunately the winning store was just a little further west in Zephyrhills, Florida.
"I've never been there," he said.
The small suburb of Tampa is famous today after one person hit the almost $600 million dollar Jackpot on one ticket sold there.
"Congratulations to them, I hope they use their money wisely," he said.
Dakari thinks it could've hit a little closer to home. "Jacksonville is due for the next time," he said.
As they say, better luck next time.
The winner has not yet been revealed, but stick with First Coast News, we'll let you know as soon as they are.
