No one in Los Angeles won the big Powerball prize, but a player who bought a ticket in El Segundo matched five of six numbers and will walk away with $1.4 million, officials said.

California Lottery officials announced late Wednesday that the sole jackpot-winning Powerball ticket was sold at a Chevron gas station in Milpitas, Calif.

The owner of that ticket will take home about $425.3 million, California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso said. The owner of the gas station will also receive a $1-million prize.

Two tickets purchased in California matched five of the six winning numbers, and the two winners will split a $2.8-million prize, officials said.

The tickets were sold in Modesto and El Segundo, and the retailers who sold them will receive an estimated $7,000 bonus for selling a ticket with a prize over $1 million, he said.

As of Thursday morning, Traverso said the winner of the $425.3-million jackpot had not come forward.
