One ticket sold in California has won the $425 million Powerball jackpot. The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 1, 17, 35, 49, 54 and the Powerball 34.

The ticket was sold at Dixon Landing Chevron in Milpitas, about 10 miles north of San Jose. The business will receive $1 million for selling the winning ticket.

The jackpot is estimated at $425.3 million with a cash payout option of $242.2 million. That's one of the largest in U.S. history, but far from the record.

The nation's biggest lottery prize was a $656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot in 2012. The biggest Powerball jackpot was $590.5 million last May.

Nebraska did have a winner in Pick 5 on Wednesday. A ticket sold in Lexington matched all five winning numbers (2, 6, 10, 21, 35) for the $66,000 jackpot.
