A winning Powerball lottery ticket that hit a $400 million jackpot was sold in California, according to lottery officials.

The ticket was purchased at a gas station in Milpitas, California, located in the Bay Area. It successfully matched the numbers 17, 49, 54, 35, 1 and the Powerball number 34.

Dixon Landing Chevron, the gas station, will receive a $1 million bonus for selling the winning ticket, officials said.

A tweet from the California Lottery Twitter account claimed that the ticket was the only jackpot winner sold.

The South Bay is no stranger to selling jackpot-winning lottery tickets.

In December, a small San Jose gift shop sold a $324 million Mega Millions ticket. It was one of two big tickets. The other was sold in Georgia.
