Powerball winner in the Richmond area
Lottery officials say someone in Virginia won last night’s Powerball Jackpot of more than $212 million.
Officials say that one ticket sold in the Richmond area matched all six numbers.
The winning numbers were 5-27-36-38-41 and Powerball number 12.
The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize.
That person or persons will have a choice: either take the full jackpot in 30 annual payments, or a one-time cash option of approximately $136.4 million before taxes.
Lottery officials say they will announce where the ticket was purchased later today.
