The Publix Supermarket at Congress Avenue and Hypoluxo Road sold the nation's only winning Powerball ticket in Wednesday's drawing. Someone who shops at the store is $168.5 million wealthier in Boynton Beach Thursday, August 13, 2020.

One lucky person won the $168.5 million Powerball jackpot announced Wednesday night by buying the ticket at a Publix in Boynton Beach.

Luis Canul regularly buys his lottery tickets at the Publix Super Market at Congress Avenue and Hypoluxo Road.

“My store for years and I never win,” Canul lamented.

On Wednesday, the 56-year-old Boynton Beach resident found himself in another part of town and bought his Powerball tickets elsewhere.

That may have been a $168.5 million mistake.
