After Wednesday's Powerball drawing, two winning tickets were sold. One in Arizona, the other in Missouri. Yet, some Virginians are cashing in too.
The Virginia Lottery reports that four tickets were bought in Virginia that matched the first five numbers. Each of those tickets are worth $1 million each.
Those tickets were sold at:
- 7-Eleven, 5267 Lee Highway, Arlington
- Sali Mini Mart Discount Tobacco, 1721 Roanoke Road, Daleville
- Mr. B’s Welcome Center, 3833 North Valley Pike, Harrisonburg
- Kroger, 901 North Lombardy Street, Richmond
There were also 15 tickets sold in Virginia that each won $10,000.
Virginia Lottery officials say the record Powerball jackpot generated $13.3 million for K-12 public schools in Virginia. By law, all of that profit goes to K-12 public schools in the Commonwealth.
