Winning Powerball Ticket Sold in Virginia
The Powerball numbers for Feb. 6 were: 5, 27, 36, 38, 41 and the Powerball was 12.
Update 10:25 a.m. - The winning Powerball jackpot ticket was sold at a self-service kiosk in Richmond, according to Virginia Lottery officials.
Sadly, there were no $1 million winners from Virginia.
Check your tickets, anyway! You may have won $4 (which would pay for today's latte) or $100,000 (which could pay off your student loans and then some) — or some nice amount in between.
The next drawing's jackpot is $40 million right now, but it will grow with ticket sales over the next several days.
The Powerball jackpot grew to $217 million Wednesday night before someone won—and that person bought the winning Powerball ticket in Virginia.
Lottery officials have not released information on where in Virginia the winning ticket was purchased.
