The $425 million winning ticket of Wednesday’s Powerball drawing has been sold in California.
The lucky ticketholder picked all six winning numbers – 1, 17, 35, 49 and 54, with a Powerball of 34 – to hit the $425 million Powerball jackpot, California lottery officials said.
That makes it the sixth-largest jackpot in US lottery history.
The winner could choose to get the cash in a $242.2 million lump sum, officials said.
The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron station in Milpitas, in the heart of the Silicon Valley. The store will get a $1 million bonus for selling the ticket.
The winner didn’t immediately come forward Wednesday night, but California lottery rules require that the person’s name is publicly disclosed.
