    Although no one won Saturday night’s record $949.8 million Powerball drawing, a lucky person will be taking home close to $780,000 after purchasing a winning ticket at a Fremont 7-Eleven.

    The unidentified customer picked five of six numbers correctly, but the big jackpot was out of his or her grasp without the final number, 13. 

    When the ticket holder comes forward, the store owners will also collect a small chunk of change for their status as a winning location.

    The elusive jackpot ballooned to an estimated $1.3 billion – the highest jackpot ever – after Saturday's draw.
