If you bought a Powerball ticket at the 7-Eleven at 5267 Lee Highway in Arlington, you may want to check your tickets. John Hagerty, spokesman for Virginia Lottery, said there was a $1 million ticket sold there.
That's the closest to the Alexandria area any $1 million winning ticket was sold. There were also $1 million tickets sold in Richmond, Daleville and Harrisonburg, according to lottery spokesman John Hagerty.
The winning tickets of the $580 million jackpot were sold in Missouri and Arizona.
The winning numbers were 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and the Powerball number was 6.
Hagerty said between Oct. 3 and Nov. 28, Virginia raised $13.3 million in profit from the sale of lottery tickets. He said by law, that money must go to K-12 education.
Are you at work this morning because you didn't win? It's ok: You may be happier without the money in the long run: $550 million will buy you a lot of misery, NBC News reported Wednesday before the jackpot increased by another $30 million.
On the other hand, the money may have been nice, considering the D.C. metro area is now one of the five most expensive metro areas in the country, according to a WTOP report.
Specifically, Arlington is the most expensive part of Virginia to live in (followed by Vienna, Alexandria, Ashburn and Fairfax), and Arlington is among the top 100 most expensive housing markets in the country, data from Coldwell Banker shows.
