There are two Powerball winners this morning, and lottery officials have confirmed that the lucky jackpot winners bought their tickets in states Arizona and Missouri.
The winning ticket holders who selected Powerball numbers
5-16-22-23-29 and the PB number 6 will now split the nearly $580 million jackpot. There were also 8,924,125 other winners of non-jackpot prize money for the Nov. 29 powerball lottery, totalling more than $131.5 million.
With over half a billion dollars at stake, the Powerball saw a lottery ticket sales frenzy, much like last March’s Mega Millions jackpot that totally a record $656 million.
Lottery results update
Because the Powerball isn’t available in all states - just 42 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands - the lottery ticket winners don’t necessarily hail from Arizona and Missouri.
California residents, for example, had to cross borders in order to buy lottery tickets before Wednesday’s drawing, and neighboring Arizona happened to be a popular choice for that.
Also important to point out, most states that participate in the Powerball game require winners to be revealed as a matter of public record. This includes Arizona and Missouri.
Lottery winners in Kansas, Maryland, Delaware, Michigan, North Dakota and Ohio are the only ones who have the option of remaining anonymous upon claiming to have the ticket to lottery officials.
In other words, we should find out who wants to cash in their ticket for half of the $580 million jackpot very soon.
