    At the Chevron convenience store where the ticket was sold, store owner Vikram Vohra was all smiles Thursday. He gets to collect $1 million because his store, which he co-owns with his brother, Vinny, sold the winning ticket.

    I have not been paying attention to what states pay stores for selling the jp but I am sure California must have the biggest pay. Very nice!

    That money's gone fo ever

      Just 6 months in and won the Jackpot! The night California won 10-23-13 there was 113,114 winners from that state that won in all tiers of the game, including the big Jackpot winner. Now last night there was only 44,521 winners from that state in all tiers of the game. I Guess since it was won on Wednesday night, not many players was willing to play powerball last night in California! Go to Powerball.com and click on winners by break down to see all winners total from each state! Have a nice Day!!

          Maybe the store owner will give all the "lowly" employees at that store, an early Xmas bonus of $20,000.00 each. Most people that work for gas stations, appear not to have a lot of money. Let's hope the owner is not a tightwad.

              Cali pays 0.5% of Jackpot to the store. Other more mature lotteries on the East coast have figured out that you don't need to pay the store that much and put a cap on it.

              Who and what activity is that bonus incentivizing? It's a bit misplaced.

              If he gave his employees of that store a few thousand Xmas bonus, that would be appropriate.

                Giving a $20,000 Xmas bonus to each employee might be a little over the top but I don't see anything wrong with giving them a few thousand each.

                  Wow! Congratulations to the California's first Powerball winner! If there's only one winner, he is extremely lucky to have a huge amount of jackpot prize! Was he able to claim his prize already?
