LEXINGTON, S.C. - Somebody in South Carolina is sitting on a life-changing set of numbers.

A state lottery spokesperson confirmed Thursday a single Powerball ticket sold in Lexington hit the $400 million jackpot.

The spokesperson said the ticket holder had not come forward as of Thursday morning. The state's lottery rules allow the ticket holder to remain anonymous.

The lottery office said the ticket was sold Wednesday afternoon at a small gas station in Lexington, which will earn that business $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.

It's the fourth-largest jackpot in U. S. lottery history. The biggest was a $665 million Mega Millions prize in March 2012, while the largest Powerball jackpot was worth $590.5 million this past May.
