(WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.) — A California ticket won a $421 million Mega Millions Jackpot, the equivalent of $289.5 million in cash, on Friday.

The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron gas station in Woodland Hills, California, according to the California Lottery.

A ticket holder matched all six numbers, white balls 3, 16, 25, 44 and 55 and the gold Mega Ball 13, in Friday’s drawing, according to Mega Millions.

Four tickets matched the five white balls, winning the game’s second prize. One sold in Ohio is worth $3 million, because it included the optional Megaplier, which multiplied the ticket’s winnings by 3, according to Mega Millions.
