    SEARSPORT (WGME) -- One person is waking up $758 million richer.

    A single winning ticket was sold for Wednesday night's Powerball jackpot in Chicopee, Massachusetts.

    It was the only winning ticket, which means whoever has it gets the full $758 million.

    In case you missed the drawing, the winning numbers were 6-7-16-23-26 and the Powerball number is 4.

    In Maine, a $1 million ticket along with a $50,000 ticket were sold.

    The $1 million ticket was bought at at the Steamboat Galley in Searsport.

    "We sold a million dollar ticket and I said, 'That's a good start to a day!'" said store owner, Bain Pollard.

    The store will receive $20,000.

    "After taxes we're gonna split that with all the employees here, so everyone's running around with a smile on their face today," Pollard said.

    "That's awesome," said Christine Brassbridge, an employee of nine years. "They really don't have to do that. They're really generous people."

    For now, the identity of the new millionaire remains a mystery.

    "I hope it's someone who comes in here all the time," Pollard said.

    The $50,000 winning ticket was sold at Shaw’s in Freeport.

    If you didn't win the big prize, you'll still want to check your tickets closely as you may have won a smaller prize.
