RICHMOND, Va. -- No Powerball tickets sold in Virginia won Wednesday's $1.5 billion jackpot. However two Powerball tickets sold in Virginia matched enough numbers to win a $1 million prize. Those $1 million tickets were sold in Salem and Virginia Beach, lottery officials confirmed.

"In last night's drawing alone, more than 700,000 Powerball tickets bought in Virginia won prizes. That includes two tickets that each won $1 million, four tickets that each won $100,000 and 20 tickets that each won $50,000," Virginia Lottery officials said. "If you add up all the winning tickets in Virginia for the January 13 Powerball drawing, it comes to nearly $7 million in prizes."

As for the $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot -- the largest lottery prize in history -- will be split at least three ways. The winning tickets were sold in Chino Hills, California; Munford, Tennessee; and in Melbourne Beach, Florida, according to state lottery officials.

The winning numbers were 08, 27, 34, 04 and 19, and the Powerball was 10.

The odds of winning the record jackpot were 1 in 292 million.

Balbir Atwal, owner of the 7-Eleven franchise in Chino Hills that sold one winning ticket, said it was "very exciting."

"I didn't expect this big crowd but my Chino Hills customers love me, and I love them," he said. Atwal, who has owned the store for 24 years, will receive a $1 million bonus for selling the winning ticket.

The winning ticket in Florida was sold at a Publix Supermarket.

Leading into Wednesday, there had been 19 consecutive Powerball drawings with no winner. As ticket sales soared, so did the jackpot's value. Two weeks ago the grand prize was a mere $400 million.

Powerball players spent an estimated $2.6 billion on tickets since the last jackpot was claimed in November. To win the grand prize, the ticket must match all five numbers (in any order) and the red Powerball number.

The prize money will be split evenly among the lucky ticket holders, each of whom will face a massive tax bill. The winners will be able to select payments made over 30 years, or take a smaller, up-front lump sum.

The cash value, or lump sum total, of Wednesday's jackpot was $929.9 million.

The previous record U.S. lottery jackpot was a Mega Millions game in March 2012 that paid out $656 million.

Lottery officials and experts recommend that winners assemble a team of financial professionals before claiming the prize.

They also say winners should try to stay anonymous. There are a few states that don't release the names of lottery winners. Otherwise, a winner could create a trust that can claim the prize to stay under the radar.

The next Powerball drawing, scheduled for Saturday, has a jackpot of just $40 million.
