Lottery officials say someone in Virginia won last night's Powerball Jackpot of more than $212 million.

The jackpot-winning Powerball ticket was bought at Richmond International Airport, at the Lottery Express (self-service) machine. That's according to lottery officials.

Officials say that one ticket sold in the Richmond area matched all six numbers.

The winning numbers were 5-27-36-38-41 and 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.
