HAMPTON - A Virginia Beach man is Virginia's newest millionaire -- minus taxes, of course.

Dwayne Lowry bought a winning Powerball ticket for the January 30 drawing and will pick up his winnings Thursday afternoon at the store where he bought the ticket - Happy Shopper in Hampton.

The winning numbers were 14-16-32-47-52 and the Powerball number was 16. His ticket matched all but the Powerball number.

"He'll get his winnings in a lump sum. The store gets a $10,000 bonus from the Lottery for selling the ticket," spokesoman John Hagerty told WVEC.com.

Lottery officials say there have been 9 $1 million Powerball tickets bought in Virginia in nine weeks – since November 24.
