CHRISTIANSBURG, VA -

The Virginia Lottery says one Powerball ticket sold in Christiansburg won $1 million is Wednesday night's drawing.

It was sold at the Wilco Food Mart, 204 Roanoke Street.

The winner has not claimed their prize as of this morning.

It marks the second time the New River Valley has sold a Powerball ticket that won at least $1 million.

The Lottery says more than 64,000 tickets won prizes from the drawing in the Commonwealth.  Those prizes range from as little as $4.00 to the $1 million won in Christiansburg.

Two tickets won $10,000.  They were bought in Northern Virginia, in Alexandria and Manassas.

The estimated jackpot for Saturday's Powerball drawing is $475 million, after no one hit the jackpot on Wednesday.
