Yesterday, the Virginia Lottery identified Falls Church resident Chay Nguyen as the person who bought a winning $1 million Powerball ticket at the Woodstock Sunoco late last month. According to the Virginia Lottery’s news release about Nguyen’s win, he matched the first five numbers in the Jan. 24 Powerball drawing.
The winning numbers were 16-19-20-29-33 and the Powerball number was 10. The only number he didn’t match was the Powerball number. Had he matched the Powerball number, he would have won an estimated $230 million. Nguyen’s ticket was the only ticket in Virginia and one of ten tickets nationwide that matched the first five numbers in the Jan. 24 drawing.
