MILPITAS, Calif. (AP) — A lottery player in Northern California has hit the jackpot in Wednesday night's $400 million Powerball drawing.
California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso says the winning ticket — which successfully matched the numbers 17, 49, 54, 35, 1 and the Powerball number 34 — was sold at Dixon Landing Chevron gas station in Milpitas, Calif.
Traverso says it is not yet known if there was another winning ticket out there in another state but that final results were expected by Thursday morning.
The store is also big winner, as it will receive a $1 million bonus for selling the winning ticket.
In December, one of two winning Mega Millions tickets was sold at a small San Jose gift shop for a jackpot of $648 million. The other was sold in Georgia.
