By Emily Langer,
An Arlington woman won $1 million in the Nov. 28 Powerball drawing, the Virginia Lottery announced Friday.
The winner, Joanna Wallace, had never played Powerball before, according to information provided by the Lottery. She purchased the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 5267 Lee Highway in Arlington. She returned to the same store Friday to receive her check. The convenience store received a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery.
A total of four tickets sold in Virginia won $1 million each in the Nov. 28 drawing, according to the Lottery. The other tickets were sold in Daleville, Harrisonburg and Richmond.
A Richmond resident won $1 million in the Dec. 5 drawing, said John Hagerty, a spokesman for the Lottery. In the Dec. 8 drawing, a winning ticket for $1 million was sold in Woodbridge. That award has not yet been officially claimed, Hagerty said.
