Winning $217M Powerball ticket purchased in Henrico
A Powerball ticket purchased in Henrico County matched all six numbers in the Feb. 6 drawing to win an estimated $217 million.
The winning ticket was purchased at the self-service Lottery Express machine in the atrium of Richmond International Airport, according to Virginia Lottery officials.
The winning numbers were 5-27-36-38-41 and the Powerball number 12.
The winner has 180 days from the drawing to claim the prize. That person or persons will have a choice: Either take the full jackpot in 30 annual payments or a one-time cash option of approximately $136.4 million before taxes.
This is the second-largest jackpot ever won by a ticket bought in Virginia. The largest was $239 million, which was won by J. R. Triplett of Winchester in 2004, playing Mega Millions.

Halligan blends local theme with tasty classics
Owner Shawn Gregory, a retired Henrico firefighter, outfitted the Halligan West location with a 1967 fire truck that his own father rode in his early career at the Highland Springs station.
Among other firefighter memorabilia incorporated into the theme are buckets and firefighter helmets suspended from the ceiling to serve as lamps, and fire hoses wound into the railing of the patio. The walls are covered with tools, photos, badges, and memorabilia from fire companies around the country, and Gregory rents a small "VIP" party deck on top of the fire engine and donates proceeds to charity, including a burn foundation. > Read more.
