DUBLIN, Va. (WFXR) — Someone beat the 1 in 292.2 million odds and matched all six numbers to win the jackpot in the Virginia Lottery Powerball game. But what are the odds of losing that winning ticket?
On March 4th, the Virginia Lottery drew six numbers that would make someone around $162.6 million dollars richer. This is the fourth-largest prize ever won in a Virginia Lottery game, and the ticket was bought in our very own area, at Gill Brothers, located off Cleburne Boulevard in Dublin.
The winner has a little over six months to claim their prize. The ticket will no longer be valid 180 days after the drawing.
