A Powerball player in the St. Louis area will soon have a fatter wallet. That's because a $1 million winning ticket was sold at a South County liquor store.
While no one won matched all six numbers to win Wednesday's $360 million jackpot, Missouri Lottery officials say a ticket matching all five white balls was sold at Telegraph Liquors in the 5600 block of Telegraph Road. That ticket is worth $1 million.
A $10,000 ticket was also sold at a QuikTrip in Ellisville.
Since there was no big winner Wednesday, the jackpot for Saturday's drawing has increased to an estimated $550 million.

There had initially been some concern about a possible leak, but officials say all of the affected cars were empty. And no one was injured.
Officials expect to have Reavis Road back open by 7:00 a.m.
