Someone who bought a ticket in the District won the $10.6 million jackpot in Saturday's Lotto America game, in which the city participates along with 14 states from coast to coast.
A single winning ticket also was sold in Virginia for Saturday night's drawing in the Virginia Lotto game, entitling its holder to payments worth about $4 million.
Neither ticket purchaser was immediately identified. Winners of the twice-weekly drawings usually remain unknown until they bring their tickets to lottery agency offices, lottery officials said.
Payments are made in equal annual installments over 20 years.
D.C. Lottery agency spokeswoman Dana Shelley said she did not know yet which of the approximately 600 lottery outlets in the city sold the ticket that carried the winning numbers: 7, 17, 27, 42, 43 and 47.
The winning Virginia ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven store in Hampton, said Kenneth W. Thorson, director of the Virginia lottery agency. The winning numbers were 6, 7, 18, 22, 29 and 43.
The winning numbers in the three-year-old Lotto America game, known in the District as D.C. Lotto America, are drawn in Des Moines. Players can choose numbers 1 through 54, and Shelley said the odds against picking all six are about 13 million to 1.
In the Virginia Lotto game, the six winning numbers are drawn in Richmond. Players can choose from the numbers 1 through 44, and the chance of winning is 1 in about 7.1 million, Thorson said.
No winning ticket was sold for Saturday's drawing in the Maryland Lotto game, which had a $2 million jackpot.
Virginia's largest jackpot was about $22.2 million; the biggest jackpot hit by a purchaser of a D.C. Lotto America ticket was about $16 million, Shelley said.
