NORFOLK, Va. (WRIC) — Although the jackpot-winning ticket in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing was not bought in Virginia, there was no shortage of winners in the Commonwealth.
Five tickets bought in Virginia each won $10,000. One of the tickets was bought at a Subtrack Food Mart at 5369 East Princess Anne Road in Norfolk.
Two were bought in Richmond, while the others were in Keswick and Manassas.
In the 11 weeks leading up to last night’s drawing, during which the jackpot gradually grew to $543 million, the sale of Mega Millions tickets in Virginia generated an estimated $11.6 million in profits.
Those profits go to K-12 education in Virginia.
