(RNN) - Someone in the Palmetto State is much richer, thanks to the luck of the draw.
A ticket with the winning Powerball numbers was purchased in Lexington, SC, at a Murphy USA gas station, according to CNN.
Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers are 7, 10, 22, 32, 35 and the Powerball is 19.
South Carolina lottery official Paula Harper Bethea said the station will win $50,000 for selling the winning ticket, Raycom station WIS reported. According to the state's lottery rules, the winner can choose to remain anonymous.
The $400-million jackpot is the fifth largest in Powerball history. That's $223.6 million if you take the cash.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510.
If it seems like huge jackpots have been the norm lately, that's because they have been. A rules change in 2012 in which ticket prices went up from $1 to $2 has lead to bigger payouts.
Powerball is played in 43 states, plus Washington, DC and the Virgin Islands.
The largest Powerball win came in May, when an elderly Florida woman won $590 million. She opted for a lump sum of around $370 million.
