Powerball Jackpot

Two ticket holders will share the highest Powerball jackpot ever, and the second-largest top prize in U.S. lottery history. The question is: Who are the winners waking up to new lives as multimillionaires?  Lottery officials said early Thursday that tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri matched all six numbers to win the record $587.5 million jackpot.  The numbers drawn Wednesday night are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29. The Powerball is 6.  It was not clear whether the winning tickets belonged to individuals or groups. Arizona lottery officials said early Thursday morning they had no information on that state's winner or winners but would announce where it was sold during a news conference later in the day. Lottery officials in Missouri did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.
