RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — As the Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $790 million, one Virginia ticket wins $1 million.
The ticket that won $1 million was bought online by a Chesapeake resident. The ticket matched the first five numbers and missed only the Mega Ball number.
There were also two other Virginia tickets that each on $10,000, respectively. They matched four of the first five numbers plus the Mega Ball number and were bought at:
- 7-Eleven, 6501 Iron Bridge Road in North Chesterfield
- Food Lion, 15432 Rogers Clark Boulevard in Bowling Green
The winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing were 14-40-60-64-66, and the Mega Ball number was 16.
