Though no one won the Florida Lottery Powerball jackpot prize of over $800 million on March 25, a lucky patron of the 7-Eleven in Ocoee did take home a ticket worth $1 million.

Last night's winning numbers were 7, 11, 19, 53 and 68, and the Powerball number was 23. 

The ticket purchased at the convenience store at 331 W. Silver Star Road had all five of the first set of numbers correct but didn't hit the Powerball number, which is why the prize for the ticket is $1 million and not the full $800+ million jackpot. 

Florida Lottery's press office was unable to confirm if the winning ticket had been claimed, but whoever does own the ticket can begin the process of claiming their prize by visiting their nearest lottery headquarters.

With no one selecting the correct six numbers, it has now been 36 straight drawings without a winner. The Powerball jackpot is estimated to climb to $865 million for its next drawing on Wednesday, March 27.
