$1M Powerball Ticket Sold In Christiansburg

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Lottery says someone bought a $1 million Powerball ticket in Christiansburg.

The ticket is one of more 64,000 sold in Virginia that won a prize in Wednesday night's drawing. The prize-winning tickets range from $4 to $1 million. They include two $10,000 tickets that were sold in Alexandria and Manassas.

No one won the jackpot, which is now an estimated $475 million for Saturday night's drawing. Lottery officials said Thursday that more than 4.7 million Powerball tickets are expected to be sold in Virginia on Saturday.

The $1 million winner hasn't yet claimed the prize.

In February, a Fredericksburg couple claimed a $217 million Powerball jackpot.
