Someone who purchased a Powerball ticket at a Rocklin supermarket matched five of six numbers in Wednesday’s Powerball draw to win $1,623,182.

The winning ticket was sold at the Bel Air store at 2325 Sunset Blvd., according to a California Lottery news release. The ticket matched the numbers 30, 33, 35, 38 and 64, missing only the Powerball number 22.

The retailer will receive an $8,115 bonus check for selling the winning ticket. The bonus comes from a separate fund and is not subtracted from the winner’s prize.

As of Thursday, the winner had not come forward. Lottery officials urge the winner to sign the back of the ticket in ink, keep it in a safe place and visit any of nine Lottery District offices as soon as possible. The winner has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim the prize.

Because no one matched all six numbers Wednesday, the jackpot for Saturday’s jackpot has increased to $205 million.
