State Specific Rules

You can play Powerball in Virginia as long as you are at least 18 years of age. You can subscribe online or just fill out a playslip, either choosing your own numbers or asking for an Easy Pick. If you go for an Easy Pick, a random set of numbers will be chosen for you. Ticket sales close one hour before the drawings on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

As well as being able to play in up to 26 consecutive draws, you can also plan ahead for a special date by selecting the OPTIONAL PLAYS box on your playslip and entering one ‘Future’ draw. Just let the store clerk know which date you want to play. Another option is to select ‘Repeat’ on your playslip if you want to have the same numbers printed on up to 20 separate tickets.

If you win a prize of over $5,000, it will be subject to a state tax of 4 percent in addition to the federal tax of 24 percent.

You can watch Powerball drawings on the following television stations in Virginia:

City Station Channel
Hampton Roads WVEC-TV
Harrisonburg WHSV-TV
Northern Virginia WFDC-TV or WUSA-TV
Roanok WDBJ-TV
Richmond WRIC-TV

How to Claim Prizes

If you win a prize in Virginia, you will need to come forward and claim it within 180 days of the draw taking place. You should be able to collect any prize up to $600 from any licensed retailer, although some stores will not keep large amounts of cash on their premises for security reasons so you may be given a check or money order.

For prizes of $600 or more, you will need to visit one of the state’s customer service centers or mail your ticket to the Virginia Lottery headquarters. You will need to fill out a claim form and provide identification for any prize of above $600. Acceptable forms of ID include a driver’s license, a passport, a state- or government-issued photo ID card, or a craft or trade license. You must also provide proof of your social security number.

Lost and Damaged Tickets

A Powerball ticket is a bearer instrument, so if you lose it and have not signed it there is no chance that you will be able to claim any prizes you might have won. If your ticket has been damaged, it is unlikely to be eligible for any prize unless it still meets certain conditions. The ticket must still be intact and cannot be unreadable, counterfeit, defective, torn, stolen, defaced, altered, reconstituted, tampered with or previously paid. The ticket data must correspond exactly with the lottery’s computer records.

Going Public

You cannot remain anonymous if you claim a large Powerball prize in Virginia; your name and hometown will be made public and a news release will be posted with your photo. While the Virginia Freedom of Information Act requires your identity to be made public, your home address, phone number and Social Security number will not be released.

Where Does the Money Go?

The majority of the money raised from Powerball ticket sales, 58 percent, is returned to players in the form of prizes. More than a quarter of the revenue, 28 percent, also goes towards public education from kindergarten right through to 12th grade. You can see a full breakdown of where the Virginia Lottery’s revenues go in the table below:

Aread of Spending Percentage of Revenue
Prizes 57.8%
Public Education 28.3%
Operating Expenses 8.5%
Retailer Compensation 5.4%

The lottery has generated hundreds of millions of dollars for schools every year since its inception in 1989. To date, more than $11 billion has been allocated to public education, and funded programs have included Career and Technical Education, the Virginia Preschool Initiative, Early Reading Intervention, Special Education and School Breakfast Program.

Biggest VA Powerball Winner

Dave Honeywell became Virginia's first Powerball jackpot winner on February 6th 2013 when he banked $217 million. A computer scientist with the Department of Defense, the Fredericksburg resident purchased his ticket on Superbowl Sunday as he was flying out of Richmond International Airport on a business trip. 

He did not discover his good fortune until after he had returned a couple of days later, and his wife admitted that she ‘thought he might be having a heart attack’ when he phoned to give her the news.  They announced that they had no immediate plans to quit their jobs, but he did say that he would be happy to replace his 13-year-old car that had 170,000 miles on the clock.
