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.
