Some lucky Californian won't have to worry about scrambling together rent money ever again. In fact, they could probably say "screw it" and buy a house -- or two -- in the wine country. An unidentified convenient store shopper scored this weekend after purchasing a California Lottery ticket worth $2,623,314.

The lottery announced that the winning ticket was sold at the Cable Car Wine and Spirit Grocer, located at 841 Clement St. The winning ticket reportedly matched five out of six numbers in Saturday's Powerball draw.

The winning numbers were 8, 37, 2, 35, and 22. No word on who this mystery champ is, but they have 180 days from Saturday -- the night of the drawing -- to go pick up their pile of money.

FYI, Wednesday's jackpot is $116 million. So grab a few tickets when you're picking up your next bottle of vodka.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
