ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- One woman is a whole lot richer today, after winning $1 million in Powerball.
Megan McCormick won the $1 million dollar prize and she was only one number away from winning the entire jackpot in the latest Powerball drawing.
"I had this strange feeling all weekend," she said. "Each number I picked was special – a birthday, an anniversary and my age. Then I checked the winning numbers and I thought, 'This is crazy.'"
The numbers were 5-12-15-27-38 and Powerball was 7. The only number McCormick missed was the Powerball number (7).
Powerball is hot in Virginia. In the past 12 months, Powerball players in the Commonwealth have won 10 $1 million prizes, a $2 million prize and a $217 million jackpot, lottery officials said in a news release.
