Some lucky Californian is now a millionaire.

Lottery officials have confirmed that the Powerball Jackpot, which had climbed to $225 million, was won after Wednesday night's drawing. The winning numbers are 7, 14, 21, 24, 41, and a Powerball of 26.

CBS San Francisco reports that the identity of the winner is still unknown. This is not uncommon, as many lottery winners prefer to get their affairs in order before coming forward with their winning tickets. Winning over 200 million dollars is quite the life change.

Our mystery winner isn't the only lucky person in California. Jack and Nancy Dehoff, who own the market in San Mateo where the winning ticket was purchased, will also receive a cool $1 million for their role in all of this.

Now that a winning ticket has been sold, the Powerball jackpot drops down to $40 million for the next drawing.
