MIAMI SHORES, FLA. (WSVN) - A Powerball ticket sold at Publix in Miami Shores has turned one lucky player into a multi-millionaire.

Powerball announced Monday night that a single winner matched all five white balls and the red Powerball, clinching the jackpot estimated at $214 million. After taxes, the winner would receive $76,070,000 since 24 percent of winnings over $5,000 is taxed.

The cash value of the grand prize stands at $100.1 million.

There is also a looming tax bill due in April 2025 as the winner is now in a completely different tax bracket.

The winning numbers for Monday’s drawing were 7, 23, 24, 56, 60, with the Powerball number 25.

The Florida Lottery said that the winning quick-pick ticket was sold at the Publix store located at 9050 Biscayne Boulevard in Miami Shores.

The winner has a window of 180 days from the draw date to claim their prize at the Florida Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.

Customers at the winning Publix were happy to hear somebody had won.

“That’s cool that somebody won from here!” said Janet Klein.

“I know right?” said 7News reporter’ Michael Hudak.

“I wish it was me,” said J.C.

One shopper had advice for what to do with so much money.

“Invest,” said Teddy Smith.

When asked what goes through her heart and mind regarding the massive jackpot, Klein said she hoped the winner was someone she knew.

Others that spoke to 7News wondered what they would do with all that money.

“Well, I got a lot of poor family, I would help them,” said J.C.

“Buy a few Miami properties,” said Smith.

“I’m sure I’d go on a really nice vacation,” said Klein.

“It’s a great question, you know, I would love to take my friends out to a nice steak dinner, maybe at Nobu, or something like that,” said Thomas Perez.

During the conversation, some ideas were brought up.

“Would you get a McLaren?” asked 7News reporter Michael Hudak.

“Probably not,” said Smith. “More laid back. Maybe a Rolls Royce.”

“Get a nice car,” said Perez.

“Probably get seven cars for seven days,” said J.C.

“One for each day of the week! Ahahaha,” said 7News reporter Michael Hudak.

While the answers from the shoppers varied, one of them, J.C. was very clear about what he doesn’t want.

“There’s three things I don’t want in my life. I don’t want a boat. I don’t want a motorcycle. I don’t want an ex-wife. All three of them is money. Hahahaha. All three of them is money. Negative money. I don’t want a negative money,” said J.C.

But another respondent had an idea to shield himself from negative money.

“Prenup. Prenup. That’s the move,” said Perez.

The upcoming Powerball drawing is scheduled for Wednesday, with a grand prize of $20 million up for grabs.
