GRANITE CITY, Ill. -- Illinois Lottery officials say a Powerball ticket worth $1 million was bought at a convenience store in Granite City in southwestern Illinois.

The winner as of Monday afternoon had not come forward to claim the prize.

Lottery officials say the ticket, with numbers selected by the computer at the buyer's request, was sold at Super One Stop.

The ticket's first five numbers matched Saturday's drawing: 12, 26, 44, 46 and 47.

The store will get $10,000, or 1 percent of the prize winnings, for selling the ticket.

The estimated jackpot for this Wednesday's Powerball drawing is $80 million.
