A 52-year-old Yulee man claimed a $2 million prize from the June 29 Powerball drawing by matching all five of the white ball numbers but not the Powerball, the Florida Lottery announced Thursday.

Aaron Cobb Sr. bought his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6700 Central Florida Parkway in Orlando, according to the Lottery.

The next Powerball drawing will be Saturday with an estimated $288 million jackpot.
