Floyd Co. Man Collects Powerball Jackpot


Floyd Co., VA - A Floyd County man stepped forward and claimed his $2 million Powerball prize.

Darrell Burnette bought the winning ticket at the Willis Village Mart before hitting all the numbers but the Powerball in the August 18 drawing.

Burnette also opted for the "Power Play" feature which automatically doubled his one million dollar prize for a one-dollar investment.

"Had to check it 3, 4, 5, 6 times. I tried to call my family and couldn't get a hold of anyone. So I had to wait a little while. My wife got home from church; my dad got home. I told them and they didn't believe me," said Burnette.

Burnette owns an autobody shop with his brother in Floyd County. He says he has no big plans for the money right now other than helping his family.
