(Tallahassee, FL) An 84-year-old Florida woman is the winner of a giant Powerball lottery prize.

Gloria Mckenzie of Zephyrhills claimed her prize more than two weeks after the drawing.

Lottery officials say she purchased five quick pick tickets at a grocery store.

One of them matched all the numbers for the $590 million jackpot.

Mckenzie is taking the prize in a lump sum.

After taxes that’s about $270 million.
