Cycling competition in Richmond will impact traffic near Richmond Prize Zone

At the Virginia Lottery, we’re always searching for ways to improve the customer experience. On Friday, May 2, we’re doing that by telling our players NOT to come see us. Well, not at our Headquarters location in downtown Richmond, anyway. Instead, we’re encouraging players to visit us at our Prize Zone West location to avoid traffic caused by the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships, which will cycle right through downtown Richmond.

Prize Zone West is located at 1620 East Parham Road. This site offers the same benefits to players as the Lottery’s other six customer service centers located across Virginia. Players who want to redeem winning tickets, including those for prizes greater than $600, can stop in and claim their prize. This location also offers plenty of free parking.

When it comes to education, the Virginia Lottery is game.  In fact, it’s the reason we play.  We generate more than $1.3 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools. Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products, the Virginia Lottery generated more than $486.5 million for Virginia’s public schools in Fiscal Year 2013.

Culpeper woman uses Power Play to win $200,000 playing Powerball

Jo Ann SimsJo Ann Sims would have won $50,000 if she hadn’t spent an extra dollar for the Power Play. Using Power Play, the Culpeper woman quadrupled her prize in the January 30 Powerball drawing.

Ms. Sims matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number, which normally would win $50,000. Because the Power Play number in that drawing was 4x, her extra dollar increased the prize to $200,000.

After she realized how much she’d won, she said, “I couldn’t concentrate the rest of the day.”

She bought her winning ticket at 7-Eleven, 883 North Main Street in Culpeper. The winning numbers were 5-12-16-31-43, and the Powerball number was 18. She used Easy Pick and allowed the computer to randomly select the numbers on her ticket.

Ms. Sims, who owns a small business, said she may use her winnings to purchase some real estate.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25. For more information on Powerball, visit www.powerball.com

She bought the ticket her friend didn’t want - and won $100,000

Lucille HarrelsonWould you buy a Scratcher ticket after your friend rejected it? Lucille Harrelson did, and she won $100,000!

It happened when she went along with some friends to buy tickets. One of those friends started to buy a Winner Take All ticket but then decided on a different game, so Ms. Harrelson went ahead and bought that ticket her friend had rejected.

Sure enough, that ticket ended up winning $100,000.

The Newport News woman didn’t know it immediately, though. Instead she took the ticket back to her office and scratched it there. Even after she scratched it, she didn’t think it was a winner. In fact, it wasn’t until she took the ticket to the Virginia Lottery’s Hampton Roads Customer Service Center that she believed she’d really won the game’s top prize.

Ms. Harrelson bought the winning ticket at Wawa, 5824 George Washington Memorial Highway in Yorktown.

Winner Take All (Game #1538) is one of dozens of Scratcher games available from the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 up to $100,000. This is the sixth top prize claimed in the game, which means four $100,000 prizes have yet to be claimed. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 734,400. The odds of winning any prize in this game are 1 in 4.3.

Ms. Harrelson said she had no immediate plans for her winnings.

“It hasn’t really hit me yet,” he said as he claimed his prize.

It happened as he was on his way home from work. He bought the ticket and took it out to his truck to scratch it. That’s when he realized he’d won big.

“I said to myself, ‘I’m a millionaire! I’m a millionaire!’” he said. “It was just overwhelming.”

So he took the ticket back in the store and asked the clerk to scan it for him.

“Yeah, that’s a big one!” the clerk confirmed.

Mr. Moore had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $537,393 before taxes. He chose the cash option. The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Woodbridge man wins $7 million prize by mistake! - He is Virginia’s first top prize winner in Cash4Life® game
Michael Donnelly hadn’t intended to play Cash4Life®.  Instead, like millions of people across the nation, he was watching the Powerball jackpot rise to historic heights.

As customer service manager at the Harris-Teeter at 6351 Columbia Pike in Falls Church, he was busy ringing up Powerball tickets for customers, but for one of those customers, he accidently hit the wrong button on the terminal. Instead of Powerball, he hit the Cash4Life® button and generated a ticket that the customer didn’t want, so he ended up buying the ticket himself.

That “mistake” won him the top prize.

His ticket matched all six numbers in the January 7 Cash4Life® drawing. Mr. Donnelly’s prize was a choice between $1,000 per day for the rest of his life or a one-time cash option of $7 million before taxes. He chose the cash option.

He didn’t realize he’d won until a few days later when a customer said she had heard on the news that a winning ticket had been sold at the store. That’s when he checked the numbers and immediately called his wife, Michele, with the good news.

“If that’s true, you have to come home because I’m about to have a heart attack!” she replied.

On January 29 the Woodbridge man received his check from the Virginia Lottery. Harris-Teeter received a $50,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

“It still hasn’t hit me yet,” he said.

Cash4Life® is played in Virginia, Maryland, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Tennessee. Drawings are held Monday and Thursday evenings at 9:00 p.m. Each play costs $2.  The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 21.8 million.

Salem woman wins $1 million in historic Powerball drawing

Kelly CoxKelly Cox wasn’t quite sure of the name of the game. She just knew that the jackpot was more than $1 billion and it was time for her to get in the game. So she stopped at a 7-Eleven on her way home from work.

“I’d just like $20 of whatever that big jackpot is,” she told the clerk.

One of those ten tickets ended up matching the first five numbers in the January 13 Powerball drawing to win $1 million.

On January 28, the Salem woman returned to the 7-Eleven at 2035 Roanoke Boulevard in Salem to receive her check from the Virginia Lottery. The store received $10,000 from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The mother of four didn’t realize she’d won anything until a co-worker greeted her on the morning after the historic $1.5 billion drawing with, “Hey Kelly, are you the new millionaire from Salem?”

That’s when she checked her numbers and called her husband with the news. Her ticket was one of two in Virginia to win $1 million in that drawing. The other one was bought in Virginia Beach. She used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select the numbers on her tickets.

Ms. Cox said she has no immediate plans for her winnings.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. They are broadcast on TV stations across Virginia and live on www.valottery.com. The cut-off time to buy a ticket is 10:00 p.m. on the night of the drawing.

Norfolk man collects $500,000 after taxes in Bank a Million game

Norman Turner“I’m just as happy as I can be!”

That was Norman Turner’s reaction as he collected $500,000 – after taxes - in the Virginia Lottery’s Bank a Million game.

The Norfolk man matched all six numbers in the January 20 drawing. Since he split his $2 wager when he bought the ticket, he had two sets of numbers, which doubled the chances to win. Using that “Play Your Way” feature, he won $500,000 on one of his sets of numbers.

He bought his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6100 Tidewater Drive in Norfolk. The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

“You’ve got to be in it to win it,” he said as he received his check.

The winning numbers were 4-14-15-19-20-38. The Bonus Ball number was 34, although he didn’t need it to win the top prize. He used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select his numbers.

The top prizes in Bank a Million ($1 million, $500,000 and $250,000) are calculated so that winners actually receive the prize amount after federal and state tax-withholdings.

Bank a Million drawings are Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 p.m. Bank a Million is played exclusively in Virginia. Players can win anywhere from $4 up to the million-dollar prize with a $2 ticket. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 3.8 million. The odds of winning any prize are 1 in 18.3.

Snowplow operator takes a break from plowing and wins $225,000

Gerald FinchamA lot of people didn’t have to go to work on the Monday after the huge snowstorm, but not Gerald Fincham. He was driving a large motor grader, helping in the massive effort to clear roads in Northern Virginia from the effects of Winter Storm Jonas.

He stopped his huge vehicle to buy a drink at Food Lion, 5592 Staples Mill Plaza in Woodbridge. While he was there, he bought a Pirate's Treasure Scratcher ticket from the Virginia Lottery.

When he scratched the ticket, he realized that he’d won the $225,000 top prize.

“I was in the right place at the right time,” he said as he claimed his prize a few days later. “My family got more excited than I did.”

Mr. Fincham, who lives in Hughesville, Maryland, didn’t have time to celebrate his win. He had to get back to work plowing snow!

Pirate’s Treasure (game #1648) is one of dozens of Scratcher games offered by the Virginia Lottery. It features prizes ranging from $5 all the way up to $225,000. Mr. Fincham is the second top prize winner in the game, which means one top prize remains unclaimed.

The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 1,060,800. The odds of winning any prize in this game are 1 in 4.31.

So does he intend to keep playing the Virginia Lottery after his big win? Absolutely!

Madison Heights man wins $1 million prize in 20X the Money game

Randy HallRandy Hall of Madison Heights had an interesting problem. He had a Virginia Lottery Scratcher ticket worth $1 million, but a huge snow storm was blowing through Virginia, preventing him from claiming his prize.

So what did he do? He hid the ticket in his house and babysat it all weekend, checking every hour to make sure it was still there! When the storm passed, he was finally able to redeem the 20x the Money ticket at the Virginia Lottery’s Farmville Customer Service Center.

“I’m blessed,” he said as he claimed his prize.

The prize was a choice between $1 million over 30 years or a cash option of $537,393. He chose the cash option.

He bought his winning ticket at Speedway, 2501 Lakeside Drive in Lynchburg. The store receives a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket. 

Mr. Hall said his knees got wobbly and he was speechless when he discovered his ticket was a top prize winner.

20x the Money (game #1557) features prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. Mr. Hall is the first player to claim the $1 million top prize in game #1557. That means two top prizes have yet to be claimed in this game. The odds of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,305,600. The odds of winning any prize are 1 in 3.55.

Mr. Hall, who works as an auto glass technician, said he plans to use his winnings to pay bills and as a nest egg.

Ruther Glen man uses Power Play to win $100,000 in Powerball

Donnie WoodardDonnie Woodard and his brother both won prizes in the January 13 Powerball drawing. His brother won $7.

Donnie did a bit better. He won $100,000.

The Ruther Glen man matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number. Normally, that would win $50,000, but Mr. Woodard spent an extra dollar for Power Play when he bought the ticket. The Power Play number was 2x, which doubled his prize to $100,000.

The January 13 Powerball drawing was the biggest jackpot drawing ever, at more than $1.5 billion. Mr. Woodard’s ticket is one of four tickets bought in Virginia to win $100,000 in that historic drawing. An additional two tickets each won $1 million.

He bought his winning ticket at Ruther Glen Exxon PitStop in Ruther Glen. The winning numbers were 4-8-19-27-34, and the Powerball number was 10. He selected the numbers on his ticket, including 10 for the Powerball number, which corresponds to his son’s age.

Mr. Woodard, who does maintenance work at an apartment complex with his brother, said his winnings just might result in a trip with his family to Disneyworld.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25. For more information on Powerball, visit www.powerball.com

“We got lucky this week!” - Virginia Beach man claims a hot million in $52 Million Cash Spectacular

Calvin Cooper“We’re just an everyday family. We got lucky this week.”

That’s how Calvin Cooper described his feelings as he redeemed his $52 Million Cash Spectacular ticket for the $1 million top prize.

The Virginia Beach man was at work when he scratched the ticket and realized he’d won big. He still needed his wife and children to verify it before he was convinced it really was a million-dollar winner.

“An unexpected opportunity,” he said. “It’s hard to believe we did this.”

Mr. Cooper, who is retired from the Navy, had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $681,000 before taxes. He chose the cash option.

He bought the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 4961 Euclid Road in Virginia Beach.

The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket. 

Mr. Cooper said he intends to use his winnings to pay bills and help out his children.

$52 Million Cash Spectacular features prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. As the name suggests, the game has a total of $52 million in prizes available. Mr. Cooper is the third $1 million winner to claim, which means three top-prize tickets remain unclaimed.

Virginia Lottery Green game delivers the green for Chesapeake man

Dhrumil PatelWhen Dhrumil Patel scratched a Virginia Lottery Green ticket, he knew right away he’d won the $1 million top prize. He didn’t stick around to celebrate, though. He quickly left the store.

“Let me go home and sit down for a few minutes,” the Chesapeake man recalled thinking.

He had just become the second player to win the top prize in the Green Scratcher game. He had the choice of taking the full $1 million prize over 30 years or a one-time cash option of $537,393 before taxes. He chose the cash option.

He bought the winning ticket at the store he owns: Convenience on the Go, 1441 Holland Road in Suffolk. The store receives a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket. 

Amazingly, a Powerball ticket sold at that same store matched five numbers to win $1 million in the January 9 drawing – just days before this winning Scratcher ticket was sold there.

Green features prizes ranging from $10 up to $1 million. Since Mr. Patel is the second $1 million winner to claim, that means one million-dollar ticket remains unclaimed. The chances of winning the top prize in this game are 1 in 1,305,600. The chances of winning any prize are 1 in 3.11.

Virginia Beach man wins $1 million in historic Powerball drawing

Teofilo Mesina says he hadn’t really been buying tickets for every Powerball drawing during the historic run that took the game to a record-shattering $1.5 billion.

“I would buy just sometimes,” he said. “I played a mix of my own numbers, and some computer pick numbers.”

Lucky for him, Mr. Mesina did buy some tickets for the Wednesday, January 13, drawing. It was a ticket with his own personal numbers that was worth the game’s second-highest prize of $1 million. Mesina purchased the ticket at 7-11, 2093 Lynnhaven Parkway in Virginia Beach.  

Though he didn’t watch the drawing live, he did check the numbers later that night. He says he looked, then looked again…then looked again.

“I finally called my son when I realized the numbers matched,” he said. “The next day, I talked to a financial advisor so I can decide how to handle my winnings. I wanted to win the whole thing, but I’m lucky because I won a million!”

The winning numbers for that drawing were 04-08-19-27-34, and the Powerball number was 10. His ticket was one of 81 nationwide to win the $1 million prize, and one of two in Virginia.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. They are broadcast on TV stations across Virginia and live on www.valottery.com. The cut-off time to buy a ticket is 10:00 p.m. on the night of the drawing.

Stafford woman wins $100,000 in historic Powerball drawing

Debbie TaylorDebbie Taylor is definitely not what you’d call a regular lottery player.

“I think I’ve played less than ten times in my life,” the Stafford woman said.

But as the Powerball jackpot surpassed $1.5 billion for the January 13 drawing, and the jaw-dropping amount became the talk of the nation, she decided to get in the game and buy a few tickets.

That turned out to be a $100,000 decision.  One of her tickets matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number. Normally, that would win $50,000, but Ms. Taylor spent an extra dollar for Power Play when she bought the ticket. The Power Play number for the January 13 drawing was 2x, which doubled her prize to $100,000.

“The numbers started to match, and I began to breathe hard,” she joked as she claimed her prize.

She bought the winning ticket at Wawa, 15 Eustace Road in Stafford. The winning numbers for that drawing were 4-8-19-27-34, and the Powerball number was 10. She selected the numbers on her ticket, rather than allowing the computer to pick them at random.

She said she has no immediate plans for her winnings, except to pay bills and maybe go out for a nice dinner.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25. For more information on Powerball, visit www.powerball.com

A $100,000 Powerball gift! - North Chesterfield man receives winning ticket from his wife

Walter HinesLike millions of Americans, Walter and Norma Hines of North Chesterfield were caught up in Powerball excitement as the jackpot grew and finally reached a stratospheric $1.5 billion.

Norma bought a ticket at the 7-Eleven at 4718 Jefferson Davis Highway in Richmond, using family birthdays to help her select her numbers. And it worked! Her ticket won $100,000.

When she discovered how much the ticket was worth, she gave it to her husband of 35 years.

The ticket matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number in the historic January 13 drawing. Normally, that would win $50,000, but she spent an extra dollar for Power Play when she bought the ticket, increasing the prize to $100,000.

However, the couple, expecting to collect $50,000, didn’t realize how much they’d won until they took the winning ticket to the Virginia Lottery’s Prize Zone in Richmond. When they were told that the ticket was actually worth twice that amount, they were shocked.

“She just about had a heart attack,” said the couple’s daughter Keondra.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million. The overall odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25. For more information on Powerball, visit www.powerball.com

Suffolk man finds Powerball jackpot “too big not to play,” and wins $1 million!

Matthew BrewerMatthew Brewer isn’t a regular Powerball player. Instead, the Suffolk man said he gets in the game, “when it gets too big not to play.”

That was certainly the case on Saturday, January 9, when the Powerball jackpot reached $949 million. He stopped by Convenience on the Go, 1441 Holland Road in Suffolk, and bought three Powerball tickets. He used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select the numbers on his tickets.

The next morning, like millions of Americans, he decided to check those winning Powerball numbers. That’s when he discovered his ticket matched the first five numbers to win $1 million.

In fact, his ticket was just one number away from hitting the record jackpot.

“It would have been nice to win the whole thing, but I’m not going to argue with this!” he said.

The winning numbers for that drawing were 16-19-32-34-57, and the Powerball number was 13. His ticket was one of 28 nationwide to win the $1 million prize, and the only one in Virginia. Since no one matched all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing, the estimated jackpot for the Wednesday, January 13, drawing is a jaw-dropping $1.4 billion.

Mr. Brewer, who is an auto mechanic, said he intends to invest his winnings. Convenience on the Go receives a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket. Amazingly, the store is less than a block away from a store that sold a $1 million winning ticket in the Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle drawing on January 1.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. They are broadcast on TV stations across Virginia and live on www.valottery.com. The cut-off time to buy a ticket is 10:00 p.m. on the night of the drawing.

Nearly 500,000 winning tickets in Virginia, but no jackpot winner!

PowerballA total of 489,158 Powerball tickets bought in Virginia won prizes in Saturday’s drawing, including one ticket that’s now worth $1 million. But no ticket in Virginia or anywhere else matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, so the jackpot for the Wednesday, January 13, drawing grows to an unprecedented $1.3 billion.

The ticket that won $1 million in last night’s drawing was bought at:

  • Convenience on the Go, 1441 Holland Road, Suffolk

In addition, 15 tickets each won $50,000 in Saturday’s Powerball drawing. Those tickets were bought at:

  • B.O.B., 12201 Sunrise Valley Dive, Reston                                
  • 7-Eleven, 1620 Hardy Cash Drive, Hampton              
  • 7-Eleven, 2001 Rosser Avenue, Waynesboro

  • 7-Eleven, 8324 W. Main Street, Marshall
  • Macs Circle K, 22405 Flagstaff Plaza, Ashburn           

The excitement generated by that $1.3 billion estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to lead to record sales in Virginia. The profit from every Powerball ticket bought in Virginia, like tickets from all other Virginia Lottery games, benefits K-12 public education in the Commonwealth.

If one ticket matches all six numbers in Wednesday’s drawing, the winner will have a choice: either take the full $1.3 billion jackpot in 30 annual payments, or choose a one-time cash option of approximately $806 million before taxes. If multiple tickets match all six numbers, the jackpot will be divided among them equally.

Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle creates three new Millionaires

On January 1, 2016, the Virginia Lottery announced three winning tickets in Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle.  It didn’t take long for all three winners to come forward to collect their million-dollar prizes.

Those winners are:

  • Richard “Ricky” Conner of Suffolk
  • James & Monique Coles of Prince George
  • James Lewis of Gloucester

Richard “Ricky” Conner was spending the New Year’s weekend in Las Vegas. But a call from his son caused him to cut short his vacation and hurry home to Suffolk. It wasn’t bad news, though. It turns out he had won $1 million in Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle.

“It feels pretty good!” he told Virginia Lottery officials. “A once-in-a-lifetime experience!”

Mr. Conner owns Oliver’s Grocery, 1328 Holland Road in Suffolk, where he bought the winning ticket. He said he intends to invest his winnings.

---------------------------------------

Christmas Day 2015 will forever be a red-letter day for James and Monique Cole. That’s the day the Prince George couple bought a Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle ticket that ended up winning $1 million.

It happened as they passed through South Boston while driving to visit family in North Carolina. They stopped at the Sheetz at 1007 Philpott Road and bought the ticket. On January 1, that ticket happened to be one of three $1 million winning tickets drawn.

“I was just in shock,” Mr. Cole said. “I couldn’t sleep that night.”

Although he’s happy to win such an awesome prize, Mr. Cole is keeping it in perspective. 

“I have everything I want,” he said. “I have a great wife and beautiful kids.”

-----------------------------------------

As word got around that a $1 million winning ticket in Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle had been sold nearby, James Lewis of Gloucester didn’t get excited. Someone told him the ticket had been bought at a 7-Eleven in Gloucester Point.

 

“I hadn’t bought my ticket at that store, so I knew I wasn’t the winner,” he said

 

But the information he received was wrong. The winning ticket was actually bought at the 7-Eleven at 3963 George Washington Highway in Hayes. And as it turns out, he had that ticket! After returning from a New Year’s weekend trip to the Eastern Shore, he checked the winning numbers and discovered he’d won a million dollars.

After returning from a New Year’s weekend trip to the Eastern Shore, he checked the winning numbers and made a startling discovery.

“I think I just won a million dollars!” he said.

His ticket, #051366, was one of three tickets drawn on New Year’s Day to win the $1 million top prize. On January 7, Mr. Lewis returned to the store to receive his check from the Virginia Lottery. The store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The Gloucester man said he has no immediate plans for his winnings.

The other two $1 million winning tickets in Virginia’s New Year’s Millionaire Raffle were bought in South Boston and Suffolk. Six tickets won $25,000 each. Those tickets were bought in Hampton, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Yorktown and two in Arlington. An additional 300 tickets each won $500. 

And this year, there’s something new: The New Year’s Millionaire Raffle Promotion is an extra chance to win. Players who submit an entry form, received when they bought their Raffle ticket, will be entered for a chance to win one of twenty $1,000 cash prizes. Entry deadline is January 8 with the cash prize drawing on January 13.

More than 191,000 tickets in Virginia win prizes in Wednesday’s drawing

PowerballThe Wednesday, January 6, Powerball drawing really brought out the winners in Virginia. More than 191,000 tickets sold in Virginia won prizes, including two tickets that each won $50,000. But since no one in Virginia or anywhere else matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, the jackpot for Saturday’s drawing grows to $675 million.

That’s the largest jackpot of any lottery game in U. S. history.

The two tickets that each won $50,000 in Wednesday night’s drawing were bought at:

  • Ashbrook Shell, 20065 Ashbrook Commons Plaza in Ashburn
  • 7-Eleven, 701 Van Buren Street in Herndon

Virginia Lottery officials expect to sell about 2.7 million Powerball tickets in the Commonwealth on Saturday alone. At peak times on Saturday, the Virginia Lottery expects to sell 5,400 Powerball tickets per minute across Virginia.

If one ticket matches all six numbers, the winner will have a choice: either take the full $675 million jackpot in 30 annual payments, or choose a one-time cash option of approximately $413.1 million before taxes.

The profit from every Powerball ticket bought in Virginia, like tickets from all other Virginia Lottery games, goes to K-12 public education in the Commonwealth.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Powerball drawings are broadcast on TV stations across Virginia and replayed on www.valottery.com.  For more information on Powerball, visit www.powerball.com

Virginia Lottery Announces Search for “Super Teachers” - Eight Virginia K-12 educators will receive honors, a cash prize and classroom supplies

Virginia Lottery Super TeacherRichmond, Va. (Jan. 4, 2016) – The Virginia Lottery, along with its partners at Virginia PTA and The Supply Room Companies, today announced the opening of the ninth  annual Super Teacher Awards. Between now and Feb. 15, 2016, Virginians can help honor outstanding public school teachers from across the Commonwealth by nominating them at www.vasuperteacher.com.

Each day, the Lottery generates more than $1.4 million for Virginia’s K-12 public schools. Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products, the Virginia Lottery generated $534 million for Virginia’s public schools in Fiscal Year 2015.

“The Super Teacher Awards are a great way for the Lottery to highlight our commitment to Virginia’s K-12 public schools,” said Paula Otto, Executive Director of the Virginia Lottery. “It gives the Lottery an opportunity to show Virginians that we’re game for education, and it also gives our communities a unique opportunity to show their appreciation of their local teachers.”

Since 2008, the Super Teacher program has honored 64 teachers and awarded more than $200,000 in prizes. From this year’s nominees, eight Virginia educators will be selected as the 2016 Super Teachers, winning $2,000 from the Virginia Lottery and $2,000 in classroom supplies from The Supply Room Companies.

“Being a Virginia Lottery Super Teacher is just that - "SUPER," said 2013 Super Teacher Karen Drosinos (Pembroke Elementary School, Virginia Beach). To be recognized for doing what I love to do every day is both humbling and fulfilling. The Virginia Lottery, The Supply Room Companies, and Virginia PTA provided me the opportunity to enhance the educational experiences of my students through the ability to purchase supplies which support me in bringing relevance and creativity to my scholars' learning.  From the surprise school presentation, to being recognized at halftime at the Redskins game, it is evident that this program is designed to elevate the profession by highlighting its biggest influence: teachers!”

The 2016 Super Teachers will be selected by a panel of distinguished educators and community leaders, including:

  • Dr. Jo Lynne DeMary, former State Superintendent for Public Instruction
  • The Honorable James W. Dyke, former Virginia Secretary of Education
  • Dr. Martha Ross, professor emerita, James Madison University
  • Jane Broe, president of the Virginia Parent Teacher Association
  • Michael Salvatierra, 2014 Super Teacher award recipient, Venable Elementary, Charlottesville

Anyone 18 or older can nominate a Virginia pre-K-12 public school teacher. Nominations must be received by Feb. 15, 2016. Winners will be announced online in spring 2016, and through a surprise presentation in each winning teacher’s hometown. To nominate or to learn more, visit www.vasuperteacher.com.
