We've Got Winners cornelius Harris

Cornelius Harris of Norfolk will probably always remember Friday the 13th. That's the day he received a $4 million check from Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto. Mr. Harris matched all six numbers in the April 12 Decades of Dollars drawing to become Virginia's first top-prize winner in that game.

Note:   Play Your Way allows you to control your wager and choose which top prize you want to win - $1,000,000; $500,000; or $250,000. You can choose to wager $2 on one set of numbers, $1 on two sets of numbers, or $.50 on four sets of numbers. Keep in mind, however, that no split bets are allowed. In other words, you can’t wager $1 on one set of numbers and then $.50 on two other sets of numbers. Each wager amount must total $2.

We'll draw six balls (1 to 40). A seventh ball (Bonus Ball) will be drawn; you don't select this ball on your playslip. The Bonus Ball offers you an additional chance to increase your prize.

After the drawing, check to see if the Bonus Ball number that we've drawn appears within the set of six numbers on your ticket. If it does, you've matched the Bonus Ball! Check the prize chart below to see how much you may have won.

play options

It's always great to have options and we have a few!

  • Want to play the same numbers for more than one draw on a single ticket? Well, you can! A MULTI-DRAW ticket lets you play up to 26 consecutive draws on one ticket. Please keep in mind that the ticket price increases for each draw you add.

  • Thinking ahead to a special date? You can buy a ticket for one future draw date. It's called a FUTURE draw. Simply mark your playslip and let the store clerk know which future draw date you have in mind.

  • Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? You can REPEAT your play and have the same numbers printed on more than one ticket up to 20 times.

  • Simply tell your store clerk which option you want when you present your playslip. Keep in mind that playing in more than one draw increases the ticket price by the number of draws you choose.
