WHITTIER ( — A Powerball ticket sold at a Whittier gas station matched five of the six winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing and is worth more than $700,000, lottery officials said.

The ticket sold at Friendly Hills Chevron, 14941 E. Whittier Blvd., matched the numbers 42, 14, 9, 16 and 11, missing only the Powerball number of 19. The ticket is now worth $705,729, according to the California Lottery.

The next Powerball drawing is on Saturday for an estimated $50 million jackpot.
