Lorton, Va. resident Christina Robinson won $1 million in the Powerball.

Christina Robinson bought several Powerball lottery tickets on a whim, and although she didn't hit the $560.5 million jackpot, she still got a sizeable chunk of cash.

Robinson had entered an office pool at work for the Powerball win, but bought several tickets on her own at a Lorton Food Lion.

One of her tickets matched the first five numbers in the Powerball drawing.

"I was shocked," Robinson said. "It was kind of freaky. I thought, 'This might be real!'"

Robinson, a lobbyist, said she doesn't yet have plans on how to spend her winnings, but says a vacation may be in her future.
