Check your tickets! $161 million Powerball winning ticket sold in Dublin

Winning numbers: 10 16 18 40 66, Powerball 16

PULASKI COUNTY, Va. – The Virginia Lottery reports that one winning Powerball ticket was sold in Pulaski County back in March.

Lottery officials say the winning ticket was purchased at Gill Brothers, located at 4442 Cleburne Blvd in Dublin.

The winning numbers were 10 16 18 40 66, and the Powerball was 16.

The winning ticket holder now has 180 days from the drawing to claim their prize. That person will have a choice to either take the full jackpot amount before taxes in annual payments over 30 years, or take a one-time cash option of an estimated $81.9 million before taxes, lottery officials say.

As of April 13, the winner still had not claimed their prize.

This is the fourth-largest prize won in a Virginia Lottery game, and it’s the second time a Powerball ticket was won in Virginia.

Powerball drawings are held at 10:59 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

The odds of matching all six numbers to win the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million, and the odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 25.

All Virginia Lottery profits go to K-12 education in Virginia.

Lottery officials said in Fiscal Year 2022, the Lottery raised more than $779 million for K-12 education, making up approximately 10 percent of Virginia’s total K-12 school budget.
