HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Someone in north Houston is starting this month a million dollars richer!

A $1 million jackpot-winning ticket for the Powerball drawing held on Jan. 16 was purchased in Houston. The lucky winner bought their ticket at Shop N Go, located at 4401 Irvington Boulevard.

The winning Quick Pick ticket matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (14-29-31-56-61), but not the red Powerball number (1.)

The prize has been claimed, but the winner has elected to remain anonymous.

Per a legislative change that took effect Sept. 1, 2018, the retailer will not receive a bonus for selling the winning ticket.
