COVINGTON, Va. (WFXR) — Covington resident, Ben Baker, bought ten tickets for the March 4th Powerball drawing. Some would be lucky enough to win off one, but the drawing was more than in Baker’s favor, as he won off of two tickets!

“I was really lucky!” said Baker, as he was handed his big check. Baker bought his tickets at the Food Lion at 1005 South Craig Avenue in Covington. Baker says some of the winnings will go towards home improvement but he intends to save the rest.

All Virginia Lottery profits go to K-12 education in Virginia. Virginia Lottery shared that more than $928k in Lottery funds went toward Covington K-12 education last year.
