Two tickets win record Powerball jackpot

| No Comments

Two ticket holders won the largest Powerball jackpot ever on Wednesday, the Associated Press reported.

The $587.5 million jackpot numbers matched a ticket sol in Missouri and a ticket from Kansas, the Associated Press reported.

The Powerball numbers for the second largest lottery prize in U.S. history are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 with a Powerball of 6, according to the Associated Press.

It has not yet been determined if the winners are groups of people or individuals, the http://www.startribune.com/nation/181352241.html reported.

Powerball tickets were sold at a rate of 130,000 per minute, according to the Star Tribune. That rate is six times higher than one week ago.

The winners have not yet come forward, the Star Tribune reported, but they both have 180 days to claim their prizes.
