CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia — A Charlottesville woman has claimed a $1 million Powerball prize.
Media outlets reports I Ju Liu bought the winning ticket at a convenience store for the Oct. 9 drawing. She picked up her winnings at a Virginia Lottery customer service center in Harrisonburg on Tuesday.
Liu matched five of the six winning numbers but missed the Powerball. She would have won a $108 million jackpot had she picked all six numbers correctly.
The Virginia Lottery says 10 $1 million Powerball prizes have been claimed in the state this year. A Fredericksburg couple claimed a $217 million jackpot in February and a Timberville woman won a $2 million prize in April.
