An Ashburn communications contractor won $1 million in the Virginia Lottery Powerball during the holidays.

Tom Supp of Ashburn initially thought he had won $600, according to Virginia Lottery officials, but when he went to cash in his ticket, he learned it was actually worth $1 million.

“I couldn’t speak after that,” Supp said. “I was in disbelief.”

He said he plans to save his winnings toward retirement.

Supp matched the first five numbers in the Dec. 9 drawing, missing only the Powerball number. The winning numbers in that drawing were 25-36-37-55-60, and the Powerball number was 6.

Supp bought his ticket at the 7-Eleven at 20630 Ashburn Road. He used Easy Pick, allowing the computer to randomly select the numbers on his ticket.

The store receives a $10,000 bonus from the Virginia Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

Supp's ticket was the only one in Virginia to match the first five numbers in the Dec. 9 drawing and one of just three nationwide.

Loudoun County schools received nearly $12.9 million in lottery funds for K-12 education last fiscal year, according to lottery officials.



After taxes he will almost be able to afford a nice townhouse in Loudoun County.

i’m so happy for Tom!

Tom now has heard from people he has not talked to in years, including cousins, friends from high school, etc.
Congrats, Tom!
