SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A Mega Millions ticket sold at a Sorrento Valley convenience store was the only one to match all six numbers for the $530 million jackpot Friday.

The winner of the ticket, sold at Sorrento Deli Mart & Liquor on Roselle Street, must now decide how to accept the winnings: 30 installments of the $530 million jackpot or a lump payout of $345.2 million.

The winning numbers were 17, 19, 27, 40, 68 and the Mega number was 2.

A ticket with five or six winning numbers was sold at an Orange County gas station worth $1,143,154 as well, according to the California Lottery.

One of the store's owners told 10News he only found out earlier this morning after the news surfaced.

"I have no idea [who won] ... Hopefully it's a group who won it," the man said. "Whoever it is, I'm happy for them. And I'm glad it was in our store."

The store will also get a check from the California Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Two other tickets were sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number. One was sold in Arizona and the other in Washington state, each worth $1 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.
