A man walked into an Exxon station in Maryland walked out a multi-millionaire, according to witnesses.

Folks in the store say the man was holding a ticket with the winning numbers in Wednesday's Powerball drawing.

Surveillance cameras show a tall, bald man donned in a neon yellow outfit walk slowly in.

He was in no particular rush, digging deep into a pocket to pull out various lottery tickets and checks to see if he won anything.

Seconds later, he starts pumping his arms.

He gives the ticket, which he says he purchased in Arizona, to clerk Nagassi Ghebre who says the winning numbers were on the Powerball ticket.

The apparent winner of one of the biggest jackpots of all time quickly turns to a customer for verification.

"He said, 'Is this the right numbers?' And I looked at him and said, 'Yeah, yeah you got 'em all,'" Paul Gaug explains.

If this man is actually one of the big winners, he will split the jackpot with the winners from Missouri.

Although his name is unknown, some believe he lives in Maryland.
