CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- Lottery officials told FOX 5 that a potential winner has come forward to claim the prize. Officials are currently working to verify and confirm this person is a winner.

A 7-Eleven store in Chula Vista sold one of 12 tickets in California that matched five of the six numbers in Wednesday night's multi- state Powerball drawing, lottery officials announced.

The holder of that ticket -- purchased at 290 I St. -- won't be in the same tax bracket as the lucky winner who bought the jackpot-winning ticket in Chino Hills, but hitting five of the six numbers is still worth a healthy chunk of change.

The holder of that ticket, purchased at a 7-11 located at 290 I St., will collect $638,146.

After taxes, it is estimated the take home payout will be near $390,000.

The other 11 were sold in Cloverdale, Gardena, Irwindale, Nipton, Pacoima, Redlands, Santa Cruz, Santa Monica, Santa Rosa, Tustin and Vacaville.

State lottery officials said Wednesday night that a ticket matching all six numbers was sold at a 7-Eleven at 4092 Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills, in San Bernardino County.

That ticket is worth $1.586 billion, the largest lottery award in U.S. history. The winner has yet to be identified, and lottery officials don't yet know whether that winning player or players will have to share the jackpot with other winners.

The Powerball game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. Lottery officials were still checking results from other states.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night were 4, 8, 19, 27, 34 and the Powerball number was 10.
