California Store That Sold $425 Million Lotto Gets $1 Million

Posted: Updated:

A Northern California convenience store that sold the sole winning ticket to the $425 million Powerball jackpot has received a $1 million check, as state lottery officials wait for the winner of the one of the largest jackpots in U.S. history to come forward.
 
The California Lottery presented the check to Parmeet Singh, whose family owns Dixon Landing Chevron in Milpitas.   
 
Singh said his father, Kulwinder Singh, owns the store but was en route to India and wasn't expected to hear about the $1 million prize until after he landed in New Delhi.
 
Singh and employees at the store did not know who the winner could be, though he hoped it was one of the store's regular customers.
 
The $425 million jackpot was the sixth largest jackpot in U.S. history and the fourth largest Powerball jackpot.  (AP)
