Henrico man wins $100k playing Powerball

Hieu Dam would have won $50,000 if he hadn’t spent an extra dollar for the Power Play. Using Power Play, the Henrico man doubled his prize in the July 30 Powerball drawing.

He matched four of the first five numbers plus the Powerball number. Because the Power Play number in that drawing was 2x, his extra dollar increased the prize to $100,000.

Dam bought the winning ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6340 Mechanicsville Turnpike in Mechanicsville. The winning numbers were 11-17-21-23-32, and the Powerball number was 5. He used Easy Pick and allowed the computer to randomly select the numbers on his ticket. > Read more.

These companies were awarded five-star ratings and featured in the latest issue of Insurance Business America. Of the 18 carriers that made this year’s list, Markel Insurance received five-star marks in five out of the 10 categories, specifically: Carrier reputation and financial stability; competitive rates; underwriting expertise; technology and automation capabilities; and range of products. > Read more.
