A player won the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history on Aug. 9 with a ticket purchased at a Publix in Neptune Beach. That prize totaled $1.58 billion.

A winner has not yet claimed the prize.

According to Florida Lottery rules for both winning tickets, prizes must be claimed within 180 days of the drawing, and because the prizes are more than $1 million — much more — they must be claimed in person at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee — even if the person who bought the ticket is from out of state. If the winner wants the single-payment cash option, they must claim it within 60 days of the drawing.

In Florida, Lottery winners cannot remain anonymous, but because of the size of the prizes, the winners’ names will be exempt from public disclosure for 90 days, unless the winners waive the exemption. Find out more at
