Virginia Powerball players, don't quit your day job just yet.
Three tickets - one in Minnesota and two in New Jersey - got all the Poweball numbers correct in Wednesday's $445 million drawing, the third-largest in Powerball history.
Sue Dooley, senior drawing manager and production coordinator for the Multi-State Lottery Association, told USA Today late Wednesday night that three tickets matched all six jackpot numbers: 05, 25, 30, 58, 59 and Powerball 32.
After taxes, the three winners will split $258,163,064.
In New Jersey, one of the winning tickets was bought at a Super Stop 'n Shop store in South Brunswick, and one at Acme Markets in Little Egg Harbor, N.J., lottery officials said.
There were no immediate details on the winning ticket in Minnesota, USA Today reported.
However, lottery officials are still waiting for one lucky player to come forward who purchased a $1-million winner at a Giant grocery store in Annandale.
No one has stepped forward yet to claim the ticket bought at the Giant at 7137 Columbia Pike, according to the Virginia Lottery. The winner got the first five numbers: 5-25-30-58-59-(32).
No. 32 is the winning Powerball number, which means the winner narrowly missed out on a $40-million jackpot (but still didn’t do too bad for themselves).
Three others in Virginia won $10,000. Those winners were in Arlington, Front Royal, and Newport News.
Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays. Powerball drawings are broadcast on TV stations across Virginia and live on www.valottery.com.
