Powerball Winners From Ariz, Mo.: There were two lucky tickets in the record Powerball drawing Wednesday evening and the winners bought their tickets in Missouri and Arizona.
The owners of the winning tickets have yet to step forward, so you may as well check yours! The winning numbers were: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6.
The winners (whether individuals or groups) will divide a jackpot that rose to $579 million by Wednesday night. The pot increased as, leading up to the drawing, tickets sold at a rate of 130,000 a minute nationwide — about six times the volume from a week ago.
