$1 Million Powerball Ticket Sold in Arlington

Someone is $1 million richer this morning after buying a winning Powerball ticket in Arlington.

The ticket for last night’s drawing was sold at the 7-Eleven store at 5267 Lee Highway, according to the Virginia Lottery. The lucky winner matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball. (The winning combination was 5-16-22-23-29 with a Powerball of 6.)

The Arlington winner was one of four $1 million winners in Virginia. The other million dollar tickets were sold in Daleville, Harrisonburg and Richmond. Fifteen $10,000 tickets were also sold in Virginia.

The biggest winner in Virginia was the Commonwealth, which generated $13.3 million in profit from Powerball tickets sold in advance of the Wednesday drawing. That money will be used to benefit K-12 public schools.

The record-setting Powerball jackpot of $587.5 million will be split between two winning tickets in Arizona and Missouri.
