Petersen bought the ticket from Publix in the 1700 block of Northeast Jensen Beach Boulevard in Jensen Beach. A $2,000 bonus commission goes to the store for selling the ticket.

Beginning last May, the names of Lottery winners who claim prizes of $250,000 or more are temporarily exempt from public disclosure for 90 days of the date the prize is claimed, unless the winner waives it, according to the Lottery.
