SDAN JOSE — A Powerball lottery ticket worth more than $2.7 million was purchased by someone at a market here, officials said Thursday.
The still unknown person picked all five Wednesday night Powerball game numbers, which were 4, 19, 23, 25 and 49, to win $2,768,497, officials said.
Had the person also picked the power number, which was 14, they would have won the $550 million top prize. No one won the top prize and Saturday’s jackpot is now estimated to be at least $640 million.
The San Jose winning ticket was purchased at Paul’s Market, 412 E. Empire St., near Japantown. The store was not open when attempts were made Thursday morning to ask about the winner.
A player in San Diego also won the same amount as the San Jose winner.
The winner has 180 days to collect their money.
