A ticket sold at a Philadelphia gas station won $1 million in Wednesday's Powerball drawing, but no one won the game's top prize, pushing the jackpot to $334 million.
The lucky ticket matched all five white balls drawn: 12, 36, 38, 54 and 51. But it missed the Powerball of 22, falling short of hitting the $300 million jackpot.
It was sold at the Sunoco located at 1560 Cottman Ave., Pennsylvania Lottery officials said. The retailer gets a $5,000 bonus.
A California ticket also won $1 million.
The top prize now stands at $334 million for the annuity, or $205 million cash, for Saturday's drawing.
The game's jackpot has been on the rise since a Tennessee ticket won $144.1 million on Nov. 4. The prize is now at its highest level since February, when three tickets split a $564.1 million jackpot.
