A winning Powerball ticket was sold in California for the jackpot estimated at $ 425 million.
The jackpot climbed about $ 25 million just in time for Wednesday night’s drawing.
California Lottery officials say the winning ticket was purchased at the Dixon Landing Chevron gas station, in Milpitas, which is in Santa Clara County.
It matched the numbers 17, 49, 54, 35, 1 and the Powerball number 34.
Odds of winning were 1 in about 175 million.
The gas station will get a $ 1 million bonus just for selling the winning ticket.
State lottery officials say it may not be known until morning whether any other winning tickets were sold in any of the other jurisdictions that have Powerball.
The drawing followed several consecutive ones that produced no top winner, boosting the jackpot to one of the largest in U.S. history. But it was still far from the record.
The nation’s biggest lottery prize was a $ 656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012. The biggest Powerball jackpot was a $ 590.5 million prize won last May.
Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
