The winner matched the five winning numbers — 3, 12, 31, 34, 51 — and the Powerball, 24.
The Colorado Lottery says the $90 million jackpot amounts to an estimated $54.9 million cash payout. The store will get a $50,000 commission. Another Colorado ticket also won $1 million in the drawing. It was purchased in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, and the winner hasn't come forward yet.
