Powerball jackpot hit at Del. supermarket

A Super G in Rehoboth Beach, Del., just got a little more super.

A Super G in Rehoboth Beach, Del., just got a little more super.

It sold one of three tickets that hit Saturday night's Powerball jackpot, worth $50 million for the annuity, about $31 million for the cash.

Louisiana and Florida, lucky again, also sold tickets that matched all the numbers: 2, 6, 19, 21 and 27, with a Powerball of 25. The previous Saturday, a Florida ticket, sold at a Publix supermarket north of Tampa, won a record Powerball jackpot, worth 590.5 million for the annuity, $370.9 million for the cash.

As of this morning, no customer had made any claims about winning.

"We don't know, we have no idea," said Bob Suttmiller, store manager.

It could have been a local person, or it could have been a tourist visiting the southern Delaware beach town for the busy Memorial Day Weekend, Suttmiller said.

It could even have been an out-of-stater, since "The Nation's Summer Capital" is popular with folks from Washington, D.C., as well as residents of Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.

New Jersey also scored a jackpot recently.

On Thursday, Giuseppe "Joe" Garofalo claimed half the cash - about $73.3 million - from the May 17 Mega Millions drawing. A Farmville, Va., ticket also hit that jackpot, advertised as having a total annuity value of $198 million.
