Someone is waking up a millionaire this morning.

A Powerball ticket sold in California matched all six numbers last night to win the seventh-largest jackpot in lottery history.

That’s a whopping 699-million dollars, meaning a very lucky ticket holder could take the cash option of nearly 500-million.

But check those numbers because five people also won a million dollars, with those winning tickets sold in Massachusetts, Virginia, Florida and Arizona.
