What would you do if you hit the jackpot? For most of us, we'll never know.

But in Navasota the real million dollar question is who has the winning Powerball ticket sold this weekend?

The small town of Navasota has been buzzing ever since this weekend's Powerball drawing.

"It's a blessing from God that person came in here at the right time to get the winning ticket and now everyone is talking about it," said lifelong Navasota resident, Wanda Johnson.

One lucky player hit the jackpot this weekend by matching five numbers in Saturday's Powerball drawing, winning one million dollars.

Roberto Rodriguez said, "It's kind of hard to believe. It's a small town so I never expected that to happen here but I guess anything can happen in this world."

Rupon Saker sold the winning ticket here at the A&B Food Mart off Washington Avenue.

He says, "A lot of people play over here at this store, Mega-millions or Powerball so I'm really happy I sold the winning ticket."

There's only one small problem though. Nobody knows who the winner is but everybody wishes it was them.

"A lot of people play it and everyone wants to be a winner but whoever it is they sure need to come down with it because I want to know," said Johnson.

Until the winner comes forward Rupon says he'll keep asking customers to double check their tickets to make sure they don't have the winning numbers.
