RICHMOND- No one won Wednesday night's $360 million Powerball jackpot, but one person in Virginia has a ticket worth $1 million.

The winning numbers were 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a Powerball of 32.

More than 64,000 tickets in Virginia won prizes ranging from $4 to $1 million. The $1 million ticket was bought at Wilco Food Mart, 204 Roanoke Street in Christiansburg. Two tickets each won $10,000 in Wednesday’s drawing. Those tickets were bought in Alexandria and Manassas.

The jackpot for Saturday night's drawing has hit $475 million and is expected to climb.

Virginia Lottery officials say more than 4.7 million Powerball tickets are likely to be sold on Saturday alone.

If one ticket matches all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing, the winner will have a choice: either take the full $475 million jackpot in 30 annual payments or choose a one-time cash option of approximately $302.4 million before taxes.

"Saturday's Powerball drawing is an exciting time for players across the state. As with any Powerball jackpot, players should remember that the odds of winning are 1 in 175 million, and those odds remain the same regardless of how many tickets are purchased," stressed Paula Otto, the executive director of the Virginia Lottery.
