One lucky person in the Bay Area became a millionaire overnight.
Although no one in Florida will be taking home Wednesday's $758.7 million Powerball lottery jackpot, three $1 million dollar tickets were sold out in Florida, and one was in the Bay Area.
The million dollar Bay Area ticket was sold at a Publix in Sarasota located at 8300 Bee Ridge Road.

The other $1 million Florida tickets were purchased in Miami Beach at a 7-Eleven and in Miami at a Publix.
So far, no one had claimed the $1 million Sarasota ticket. That person has 180 days to claim their winnings.
Wednesday's numbers were 6, 7, 16, 23, 26 with 4 as the Powerball. The multiplier was four times.
One ticket sold in Massachusetts won Wednesday’s $758.7 million Powerball lottery jackpot, matching all five numbers and the Powerball. The cash value lump sum is an estimated $480.5 million.
There were a total of 732,283 winning tickets sold in Florida for Wednesday's drawing.
The Powerball jackpot now resets to $40 million for Saturday’s drawing because a winning ticket was selected. The deadline to buy tickets in Florida is 10:00 p.m. EST.
