WHEELING, W.Va. — West Virginia has another $1 million lottery winner.

Lottery spokesman Randy Burnside tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that a ticket sold in the Wheeling area won a $1 million prize in the Powerball drawing on Wednesday.

It's the third $1 million lottery ticket sold in the state within a week.

On Tuesday, retired truck driver Randy Brown of Man claimed a $1 million Mega Millions prize. He bought a ticket that matched five numbers from the Feb. 7 drawing.

Another ticket sold in Beckley matched 5 numbers from the Powerball drawing on Feb. 8.

No one has claimed the tickets sold in Wheeling and Beckley.

The Wheeling ticket was purchased at the Firehouse Marathon gas station on Wheeling Island.

      It's pop pop popping second prizes. I remember the story in 2012 where two veterans from WV bought 7 PB tickets with PP and all tickets hit for the second prize. $14M.Eek

      It's a futile effort.

                  I seriously doubt anyone here would find it "cool" if your boy Jack Whittaker won. I believe most folks would rather see it won by someone who needs the funds and is a little more deserving.
