Two winning Virginia lottery tickets, worth $1 million and $3 million respectively, must be redeemed soon before they expire.
Virginia law requires that winning tickets been redeemed within 180 days after the drawing.
One ticket is a Powerball ticket bought at the 7-Eleven at 4647 West Ox Road in Fairfax for the September 2 drawing. The winning numbers for the draw were 6-21-41-52-62, and the Powerball number was 26.
The ticket only missed the Powerball number, making it worth $1 million. It’ll expire on Thursday, March 1.
The second ticket is a Mega Millions ticket bought at Giant Food at 21000 South Bank Street in Sterling for the September 5 drawing. The winning numbers were 11-17-59-70-72, and the Mega Ball number was 1.
The ticket only missed the Mega Ball number and would have been redeemable for $1 million, but the ticket buyer spent an extra dollar on the Megaplier, making the reward 3x. Therefore, the ticket is worth $3 million. It’ll expire on Monday, March 5.
Tickets that go unclaimed go to the Virginia’s Literary fund by law which is used improve statewide education, such as by upgrading school technology.
