Mega Millions jackpot ticket sold in Virginia

Posted: Updated:

FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Mega Millions ticket sold in Farmville matched all six numbers in the latest drawing and will split the estimated $190 million jackpot with the holder of another winning ticket bought in New Jersey, Virginia Lottery officials said Saturday.
    
Lottery spokesman John Hagerty said one of the winning tickets from Friday night's drawing was bought at the Farmville Food Lion. The winner has yet to claim the ticket, which is worth $95 million.
    
The numbers drawn were 11, 15, 35, 43, 49. The Mega Ball was 41.
    
The Virginia winner has 180 days to claim the prize and can choose to take the $95 million in 26 annual payments or a one-time cash option of $70.3 million before taxes.
    
The Food Lion store will receive a $50,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery.
    
It's the eighth time there has been a Mega Millions jackpot ticket sold in Virginia. The last one to match all six numbers occurred in July 2011 when a ticket sold in Herndon won a $107 million jackpot.
    
Virginia had its first Powerball jackpot win in February, when Dave and Nancy Honeywell of Fredericksburg claimed a $217 million jackpot.
    
Lottery revenues generated more than $487 million for public education in the state in fiscal 2012.
