2 tickets strike gold in record Powerball jackpot

Source: AP-Excite

By M. SPENCER GREEN and JIM COLE

CHICAGO (AP) - The richest Powerball jackpot ever - and the second-largest top prize in U.S. lottery history - has been won. The question now becomes: Who are the lucky winners waking up to new lives as multimillionaires?

Powerball officials said early Thursday morning that tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri matched all six numbers to win the record $579.9 million jackpot.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6.

It was not clear whether the winning tickets belonged to individuals or were purchased by 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 phone messages and emails seeking comment.

6. I know a $5 million winner


He kept his job as a foreman so his kids would have health insurance. $5 million doesn't go as far as it used to. So what did he do to get on the I won list?

The security procedures are video recorded before each drawing to make sure the multiple sets (I think there are 5 different sets) of balls are random. You can get the video with a simple request.
