 Well, this is a long way from that $1,995.32 payout late last month: A Coral Gables Fantasy 5 player was the lone winner in the state Saturday night, with a ticket worth $268,172.32.

 The numbers were 1-4-6-23-25, and it was sold as a quick pick at Publix, 106 Ponce De Leon in Coral Gables.

 That's the fourth-highest Fantasy 5 payout this year in Florida. (No. 1 is a $292,087.58 winner in St. Petersburg in April.) When Fantasy 5 yields only one winner, the payout is often more than $200,000 -- as opposed to the Aug. 28 drawing, when 98 tickets had 1-3-5-7-9.

  Meanwhile, Powerball and the Florida Lotto were both rollovers. Powerball's numbers were 6-20-34-44-48, with a Powerball of 29. It'll be about $110 million for Wednesday night's drawing. The Florida Lotto numbers were 14-21-27-31-45-52.
