The ticket was purchased at the Stop In Food Store at 2375 Roanoke Street in Christiansburg.
It was purchased for the draw on Monday, September 27, and ended up matching the top five winning numbers, according to lottery officials. Normally, matching the first five numbers earns $ 1 million, but whoever bought that ticket spent an extra dollar on Power Play, doubling the price.
The winning numbers in Monday’s Powerball draw were 21-22-39-44-60, and the Powerball number was 12. The only number that this ticket did not match was the Powerball number.
Whoever has the ticket has 180 days from the date of the draw to claim the prize. The Virginia Lottery advises, “Before doing anything else, the winner must sign the back of the ticket to establish ownership. When the person is ready to claim the million dollar prize, they should contact the Virginia Lottery. “
The store receives a bonus of $ 10,000 from the Virginia Lottery for the sale of the winning ticket.
This ticket was the only one nationwide to match the first five numbers, according to lottery officials. No ticket matches all six numbers to win the estimated jackpot of $ 545 million. This means that Wednesday’s draw jackpot grows to around $ 570 million.
Powerball draws take place at 10:59 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. The odds of matching the first five numbers to win the second prize in Powerball are 1 in 11,688,054, according to Virginia Lottery. The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.
