TAYLORS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Upstate lottery players better check their tickets for Wednesday's Powerball drawing because someone will soon be $1 million richer.

While no one in South Carolina won the $400 million jackpot, someone had a ticket that matched all five white ball numbers.

And that ticket was sold in Taylors, according to the South Carolina Education Lottery. Had the ticket holder bought the PowerPlay for an extra $1, the $1 million prize would have increased to $2 million.

The $1 million ticket was sold at the Li'l Cricket at 2904 Wade Hampton Blvd., which is between Vance and Elberta streets.

The winning numbers were 1, 17, 35, 49, and 54 Powerball: 34. The odds of winning $1 million are 1 in 5,153,633.

So far, the lottery winner has yet to come forward. They will have to go to the Education Lottery's office in Columbia to claim their prize.

More than 39,000 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $4 up to $1 million for Wednesday's drawing.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday night's drawing is $40 million and you can tune in to watch the drawing live on FOX Carolina at 10:59 p.m.
