Six tickets sold in Texas, California, and Maryland matched all five numbers – which were 19, 31, 40, 46, and 57 – and won $1 million.  

A ticket sold in Gibsonton, Florida, also matched all five numbers and since the player included the Power Play feature for an additional $1 per play, their prize increased to $2 million, according to the Florida Lottery.

There were also 80 tickets that won a $50,000 prize (Match 4+PB) and 17 tickets that won a $150,000 prize (Match 4+PB+Power Play), the lottery news release stated.
