Two Powerball tickets bought in Hampton Roads each won $150,000 in a Wednesday, January 6 drawing, according to the Virginia Lottery.

According to the Virginia Lottery, the winning tickets were bought at the Wawa located at 301 East Mercury Boulevard in Hampton and the Tinee Giant located at 1777 Virginia Beach Boulevard in Virginia Beach. Both tickets initially won $50,000, but because the players purchased Power Play, their winnings were tripled.

Neither ticket has been claimed yet.

The next drawing will be held Friday, January 8.
