ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla., June 2 (UPI) -- It's been two weeks since a winning ticket for the $590.5 million Powerball jackpot was sold in Zephyrhills, Fla., but who the lucky soul is remains a mystery.

Zephyrhills has only 13,000 residents but so far whoever among them knows who the new multimillionaire is has kept their lips sealed, ABC News reported Sunday.

A local diner owner, identified as Barb, said she among the curious. So are many of her customers, some of whom show up daily to scratch off lottery tickets.

"We're all coming in here finding out who is not going to show up for the scratch game this morning," one of them told ABC.

But so far, everyone in Zephyrhills -- and the rest of the world -- are still waiting.
