Tallahassee, Florida -- It's a safe bet to say Florida is the luckiest place in the nation right now to buy a Powerball ticket.
Two tickets bought in Florida won two different Powerball jackpots in just one week.
Florida Lottery: Tampa Bay's luckiest stores
The latest winning ticket was a Quick Pick purchased at Carrollwood Market in Tampa for last Saturday's $50 million drawing. The jackpot will be shared with winners in Delaware and Louisiana. Each ticket is worth $16.6 million for the annuity option.
And of course, one week earlier somebody won the $590 million Powerball jackpot after buying the winning ticket at a Publix in Zephyrhills.
Neither winner has claimed their prize yet.

The folks at Lottery headquarters are eagerly waiting for the winners, especially the lucky ticketholder of that $590 million jackpot.
Spokesman David Bishop says it's not unusual to see this kind of delay after someone wins a huge prize.
"Number one, we believe it's either the person is getting all their financial affairs in order preparing for this life-changing event. Or number two, there's a chance the winner may not know that they're the winner yet. So we would encourage people who may have bought a ticket at that location in Zephyrhills to check their tickets once again, see if they have the winning numbers and if they do, call us. We're waiting for your phone call."
Now, Florida can claim seven Powerball jackpot winners since the game started here in 2009.
That uncanny winning streak of two Powerball jackpots in one week has only happened once before -- Iowa had back-to-back winners last year.
Bishop says the Lottery feels good about Florida's chances for number three this Saturday.
"We're feeling kind of lucky."
