RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Someone out there has a Mega Millions ticket worth about $200 million that was bought in Virginia.
John Hagerty of the Virginia Lottery said in a news release that the winning ticket was purchased at Valley's in Shenandoah. As of Saturday morning, the prize was unclaimed.
The winner has 180 days to claim the prize. It's the third jackpot winner sold in Virginia this year. A Spotsylvania County man won a $75.6 million mega-prize on May 1, and a Rappahannock County couple won a $19 million jackpot two weeks later.
Profits from the state lottery go to K-12 education and have contributed more than $439.1 million to education so far this year.
