One ticket matched all six numbers in the July 1, 2011 Mega Millions drawing.
That ticket, which was bought in Herndon, Va., is now worth an estimated $105 million.
The winning numbers were 12-17-30-35-47 and the Mega Ball number 26.
Virginia Lottery officials will announce later today the store at which the winning ticket was purchased. The store will receive a $50,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery.
The winner can take the full jackpot in 26 annual payments or a one-time cash option of an estimated $68.1 million before taxes.
This is the seventh Mega Millions jackpot won in Virginia since the game began in 2002. It is the third-largest jackpot ever won by a ticket bought in Virginia.
The Virginia Lottery generates approximately $1.2 million per day for Virginia’s K-12 public schools. Operating entirely on revenue from the sale of Lottery products, rather than tax dollars, the Virginia Lottery raised more than $430.2 million for Virginia’s public schools in fiscal year 2010.
That represents about 8% of state funding for public education in Virginia.
