The gas station owner who sold the $2 billion Powerball ticket received a $1 million bonus, which he hopes to split among his 11 grandchildren.

The 75-year-old gas station owner received a $1 million bonus when a Powerball ticket he sold won this week's epic $2.04 billion jackpot.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Joseph Chahayed, who owns the family-run store Joe's Service Center in Altadena

California, got the bonus cheque from lottery officials outside his gas station on Tuesday morning.

Chahayed informed the newspaper that he intends to split the windfall with his family, which includes 11 grandchildren.

According to the athlete, he is also the father-in-law of NFL nose tackle Domata Peko.

On Tuesday, Peko said on his Instagram account, "My Father-in-Law Sold the Winning PowerBall." "Baba, congratulations."

For selling a winning Powerball ticket, a 75-year-old gas station owner got $1 million.

On Tuesday morning, the check was presented to Joseph Chahayed, the owner of a family-run store in California.

The Powerball prize is a stunning $2.04 billion, but no one has claimed it yet.
