TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida Lottery announced a $2 million prize was claimed by a St. Petersburg man. 

Joseph Brelsford won big from the Powerball drawing March 3. The winning Quick Pick ticket matched all five white ball numbers, but not the Powerball. 

According to the Florida Lottery, Brelsford purchased the winning ticket at a Sunoco in St. Petersburg - making them big winners, too. The gas station will receive a $5,000 bonus commission for selling the winning ticket. 

The Powerball jackpot has continued to roll since January with a current estimated $348 million jackpot for the March 7 drawing.
