      Two winning Powerball tickets sold

      Powerball officials say the record jackpot has been won. Early Thursday morning officials confirmed that two winning tickets were sold: One in Arizona and one in Missouri.

      An additional 8,924,123 players won smaller prizes. The numbers drawn Wednesday night are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6.

      A lottery official said late Wednesday that the jackpot increased to $579.9 million by the time of the drawing, making the cash option $379.8 million.

      The drawing Wednesday night for the Multi-State Lottery Association's prize followed 16 consecutive drawings that produced no top winner, boosting the Powerball to the second-largest potential lottery payout in U.S. history.

      Tickets earlier Wednesday were selling at a rate of 130,000 a minute nationwide, the jackpot enticing many people who rarely, if ever, play the lottery.
