A $1 Million Powerball Ticket Was Sold in Arlington

Powerball logoSomeone in Arlington — or someone who shops in Arlington, at least — is $1 million richer as of Wednesday night.

A Powerball ticket sold at the Ballston 7-Eleven store at 4223 Fairfax Drive matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball, in Wednesday’s drawing.

“The million-dollar ticket is the only one in Virginia to win Powerball’s second prize in [Wednesday] night’s drawing, and one of just four nationwide,” the Virginia lottery said in a press release. “The odds of matching the first five numbers are 1 in 11,688,054.”

“This is the ninth million-dollar winning Powerball ticket bought in Virginia so far in 2016,” the lottery said. “It comes just five days after a Mega Millions ticket bought in Prince William County won a $7.5 million Mega Millions jackpot.”

“Winners in Virginia have 180 days from the drawing date to claim the prize,” the press release continues. “The Virginia Lottery advises that before doing anything else, the winner should immediately sign the back of the ticket to establish ownership. When the person is ready to claim the million-dollar prize, he or she should contact the Virginia Lottery.”

The store that sold the winning million-dollar ticket will receive a $10,000 bonus from the lottery.

There was no jackpot winner in Wednesday’s drawing. Saturday’s Powerball jackpot is now estimated as $478 million.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work.
