(CNN) - One winning Powerball ticket was sold at a gas station in Milpitas, CA, near San Jose.

Wednesday's winning Powerball numbers are 1-17-35-49-54 and the Powerball is 34.

The estimated $425 million jackpot is the sixth-largest Powerball in history. A lump-sum payout would be around $230 million.

The odds of winning the grand prize are one in 175 million.

A recent rules change in the game has generated higher payouts more often. According to the Associated Press, more than half of the 10 largest lottery jackpots have happened since 2012.
