Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The Virginia Lottery says it received more than $8 million from Powerball ticket sales in the weeks leading up to a $448.4 million jackpot.         

Under state law, the money will go to K-12 public schools.       

Three tickets sold in New Jersey and Minnesota matched all the numbers in Wednesday's drawing to win the jackpot.        

The Virginia Lottery said Thursday that a ticket sold in Annandale won a $1 million prize. Three other tickets sold in Newport News, Front Royal and Arlington each won a $10,000 prize. They were among more than 108,000 winning tickets sold statewide for the drawing.
