Winning lottery ticket in Lorton

WASHINGTON - The winning ticket in Saturday's record-setting $600 million Powerball jackpot was sold in Florida, but according to lottery officials, someone in Virginia just missed.

The consolation prize is a cool $1 million.

According to a statement from Virginia Lottery, the million-dollar ticket was bought at the Food Lion on Gunston Plaza in Lorton. Another 11 Virginia tickets each won $10,000.

The winning numbers were 10-13-14-22-52, with a Powerball number of 11. A million- dollar ticket is one that correctly guesses the five main numbers but misses the Powerball number. A total of 33 tickets nationwide won $1 million.

The jackpot grew so big because no one had won since March 30, the lottery said. For Wednesday's drawing, the jackpot goes back to $40 million.
