$217M Powerball Winner To Be Announced In Virginia

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A Virginia couple who bought the winning $217 million Powerball ticket at Richmond International Airport is set to be revealed.
 
Officials say they'll accept the ceremonial check from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto on Thursday afternoon.
 
The couple bought the ticket at a Lottery Express self-service machine in the airport's atrium. The ticket sold for the Feb. 6 drawing matched all five numbers plus the Powerball.
 
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.
 
It's the second largest jackpot ever won in Virginia. The state's largest jackpot winner is J.R. Triplett of Winchester, who won a $239 million Mega Millions prize in 2004.
