TALLAHASSEE, FL (CBSNews.com-- Lottery officials say one ticket, sold in California, has matched all the winning numbers for the $425 million Powerball jackpot. 

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were: 1, 17, 35, 49, 54 and a Powerball of 34.

California Lottery officials say the winning ticket was purchased at the Dixon Landing Chevron gas station, in Milpitas, which is about 10 miles north of San Jose, in Santa Clara County.

Odds of winning were 1 in about 175 million.

The gas station will get a $1 million bonus just for selling the winning ticket, California lottery officials say. 

The drawing followed several consecutive drawings that produced no top winner, boosting the jackpot to an estimated $425.3 million, with a cash payout option of $242.2 million. That's one of the largest in U.S. history - but still far from the record. 

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

Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
