Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Lottery says someone bought a winning $217 million Powerball ticket at Richmond International Airport.
    
It's the second largest jackpot ever won in Virginia.
    
The Lottery said Thursday that the ticket was purchased at a Lottery Express self-service machine in the airport's atrium.
    
The ticket sold for Wednesday's drawing matched all five numbers plus the Powerball.
    
The winning numbers were 5-27-36-38-41 and the Powerball was 12.
    
The winner or winners can receive the full amount in 30 annual payments or take a one-time cash payment of about $136 million before taxes.
    
Virginia's largest jackpot winner is J.R. Triplett of Winchester, who won a $239 million Mega Millions prize in 2004.
