VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A Virginia Beach music instructor won $150,000 off of a Powerball ticket.
According to a press release, Vasilis Simmons matched all four of the winning numbers during the April 8 Powerball drawing. The prize for that match is usually $50,000, however, Simmons paid an extra dollar for Power Play, which then tripled his winnings to $150,000.
Simmons bought the ticket at the 7-Eleven located at 425 Kings Grant Rd and his winning numbers were 11-22-24-51-60 with the Powerball number being 18.
