Over 76,000 Powerball tickets bought in VA over the weekend won prizes

(WWBT) - Over 76,000 Powerball tickets bought in Virginia over the weekend won prizes, including a ticket that won $1 million and another that won $100,000.

The ticket that won $1 million was bought at a 7-Eleven, located at 6720 Old Dominion Drive in McLean. Lottery officials say the ticket matched the first five numbers and missed the Powerball number.

The ticket that won $100,000 matched four out of the first five numbers and the Powerball number. Lottery officials say normally the ticket would only be worth $50,000, but the person who bought the ticket spent $1 more for the Power Play, which doubled the prize to $100,000. The ticket was bought at a Fas Mart, located at 338 E. Williamsburg Road in Sandston.

Officials say the $7.6 million generated in the sale of Powerball tickets in Virginia will go to K-12 education. The money came from the 18 drawings that led to Saturday's drawing in which there was no jackpot winner.

The winning jackpot ticket was bought in New Jersey.
