The Florida Lottery says the winning ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Port Richey. The winning numbers to claim the nation's 10th-largest jackpot were 28-30-39-59-70-10. Lottery officials also increased the jackpot of Powerball, the other national lottery game, to $570 million. That drawing is Saturday night. The jackpots refer to the annuity options for both games, in which payments are made over 29 years. Most winners opt for cash options, which would be $281 million..
