A Fountain Hills store manager is hoping for a little reward after his store sold a Powerball jackpot ticket.

Bob Chebat is the general manager at 4 Sons in Fountain Hills, where the winning powerball ticket was sold. He said it's crazy to find out his shop helped someone become a multi-millionaire and he hopes they leave him a nice tip.

"You have people who say they're gonna throw something at you if they win it and it's time to see if that's gonna come true," he said.

Chebat said he has no idea who the winner is.

"None. I have no clue."
