MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A Powerball ticket sold at a California gas station is the only winner of a $425 million jackpot, lottery officials said.

No details about the winner were available after the number was drawn Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Times reported.

California Lottery spokesman Alex Traversol said the Dixon Landing Chevron gas station in Milpitas will receive $1 million for selling the ticket.

The jackpot was the sixth-largest in U.S. history. The odds of winning it were 1 in 175 million, officials said.
