LEXINGTON, South Carolina (NBC NEWS) -- Powerball officials know the where, but still not who won last night's nearly 400-million dollar lottery jackpot.
The right numbers lined up on only one ticket sold at a convenience store in South Carolina.
Within hours of Wednesday night's drawing the winning numbers were traced to one ticket sold at the murphy express in Lexington, South Carolina.
"We are excited. We'd like to know who it was," said store manager Keith Wedmore.
And so would everyone else, including the director of South Carolina's lottery.
"We have no idea who holds this ticket," said Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea.
Whoever it is, they're now nearly 400 million dollars richer; $223-million if they take the cash option.
The winner has 180 days from now to come forward and claim the jackpot that's the fourth largest in Powerball history.
Naturally, it was all the buzz at the gas station that sits on an interstate an hour or so from the Georgia border.
That had many wondering if the winner may not be local.
"We love the people who travel through South Carolina whether they're just traveling through or whether they're staying for a while. But we really hope that this one is homegrown," Harper said.
While everyone waits for the winner to come forward the store's moved on to the next drawing.
The jackpot for Friday's MegaMillions drawing now stands at $145 million.
