SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A lottery player in Sacramento County has hit the jackpot in Saturday night’s $60 million Powerball drawing.

California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso says the winning ticket — which successfully matched the numbers 3, 8, 25, 47, 30 and the Powerball number 13 — was sold at Tooley Oil in McClellan Park, about 12 miles northeast of the capital.

The store is also a big winner, as it will receive a $300,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

Two weeks ago a Milpitas player hit the massive $425 million Powerball jackpot, but the winner has yet to come forward.

In December, one of two winning Mega Millions tickets was sold at a small San Jose gift shop for a jackpot of $648 million. The other was sold in Georgia.
