FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) - A Mega Millions ticket sold in Farmville has 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 that 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.
It's the eighth time there has been a Mega Millions jackpot winner in Virginia.
