Rockingham County man collects $250,000 after taxes from Virginia Lottery

Curtis AreyCurtis Arey said he was “speechless” when he discovered he’d won $250,000 – after taxes - in the Virginia Lottery’s Bank a Million game.

“Words just wouldn’t come out!” the Bridgewater man said. “I called my wife. She let out a couple of screams.”

Mr. Arey matched all six numbers in the January 31 drawing. Since he split his $2 wager four ways when he bought the ticket, he had four sets of numbers. Using that “Play Your Way” feature, he won $250,000 on one of his sets of numbers.

He bought his winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 211 Main Street in Bridgewater.

The winning numbers were 4-13-14-20-24-26. The Bonus Ball number was 2, although he didn’t need it to win the top prize. He used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select his numbers.

Mr. Arey, who is a banker, said he hopes to use his winnings to travel.

Two Virginia Lottery tickets may soon expire: one worth $3 million and one worth $1 million

Virginia Lottery logoWould you throw away a $1 million prize? How about a $3 million prize?

Two Virginia Lottery tickets bought in Northern Virginia, now worth $1 million and $3 million respectively, will become worthless if they are not redeemed soon.

By law, winning tickets in Virginia expire 180 days after the drawing.

Here are the details on the two tickets:
• A Powerball ticket that was bought at Sunoco (now 7-Eleven) at 4647 West Ox Road in Fairfax for the September 2 drawing matched the first five winning numbers to win $1 million. Since then, the winner has not come forward to claim his or her prize. The winning numbers for that drawing were 6-21-41-52-62, and the Powerball number was 26. This ticket missed only the Powerball number. The ticket expires at the close of business, 5:00 p.m., on Thursday, March 1.

• A Mega Millions ticket bought at Giant Food, 21000 South Bank Street in Sterling, matched the first five numbers in the September 5 drawing. Normally that would win $1 million, but whoever bought this ticket spent an extra dollar for the Megaplier when he or she bought the ticket. The Megaplier for that drawing was 3x, so the prize is tripled to $3 million. The winning numbers were 11-17-59-70-72, and the Mega Ball number was 1. This ticket missed only the Mega Ball number. Whoever has it must redeem it by close of business, 5:00 p.m. on Monday, March 5.

By law, unclaimed prizes go to Virginia’s Literary Fund, which is used solely for educational purposes, such as upgrading technology in schools and teacher retirement funding.

Whoever has either winning ticket should contact the Virginia Lottery immediately at 804-692-7000 or 703-494-1501 or present their winning ticket at the Virginia Lottery’s Northern Virginia Customer Service Center at 14550 Potomac Mills Road in Woodbridge.
