Winner Draws $425 Million Powerball in California

At least one person picked all six winning numbers in Wednesday night's $425 million Powerball jackpot, California lottery officials said.

The winning numbers — 1, 17, 35, 49 and 54, with a Powerball of 34 — were worth $425.3 million after no one hit pay dirt during Saturday's drawing. That makes it the sixth-largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history.

The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron station in Milpitas in Santa Clara County, the state lottery said. The store will get a $1 million bonus for selling the ticket.

The top prize amount has been swelling since the last jackpot on Christmas Day, and it has rolled over 15 times, increasing in value after each drawing since then, Powerball officials said.
