CLEVELAND-- A Cleveland gas station sells a winning $2 million powerball ticket in Wednesday night's record breaking Powerball jackpot

While millions were hoping to win the more than half a billion dollar jackpot, there were two winning tickets. One ticket was sold in Missouri; the other in Arizona. 

The lucky numbers were 5-16-22-23-29 and the Powerball was 6.

Someone picked the 5 numbers correctly but did not get the Powerball, here in Northeast Ohio. That person won $1 million. The winning ticket holder also gambled on the Powerplay option and doubled their win to $2 million. The ticket was sold at a BP gas station on West 117th street in Cleveland.

Laurie Brown has worked at the gas station for more than 15 years and has never seen anything like this. The employees say it's still a mystery who the lucky winner is and which employee sold the $2 million ticket.

"That's the only thing. We don't have any idea who sold the ticket. All of us have been selling tickets for the past week. It's been really busy here. It could have been any of us. Whoever it is, I know they are happy as well," says Brown.

Some people feel the BP gas station on West 117th street is a good luck charm now and good fortune could strike again. "Yes! I'm gonna keep playing here and I wish it was me! Oh my god!" says Jerhonda Tate of Cleveland.

For selling the $2 million winning ticket, the owners of the gas station will receive $1000.
