A Powerball ticket from Charlottesville won $1 million in Wednesday night’s drawing. The ticket matched the first five numbers and missed only the Powerball number.
The ticket was bought at Seven Day Junior located at 111 Maury Avenue in Charlottesville.
The winning numbers for the October 9 Powerball drawing were 3-9-19-33-38, and the Powerball number was 18. No ticket matched all six numbers to win the estimated $108 million jackpot.
