    Two people in Northern Virginia are $50,000 richer. 

    While no one won the $675 million Powerball jackpot Wednesday, officials with the Virginia Lottery say two tickets purchased in Northern Virginia won $50,000. 

    One of the tickets was purchased at a Shell gas station in Ashburn while the other was purchased at a 7-Eleven in Herndon. 

    Lottery officials say 191,000 tickets in Virginia won prizes in Wednesday's drawing.

    If you weren't among the winners, you still have a chance to take home some big money. 

    The estimated prize for this weekend's Powerball climbed to $700 million Thursday, the largest jackpot of any lottery game in U.S. history.

    The previous record for a lottery was a $656 million Mega Millions jackpot won in March 2012.

    Powerball is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
