Two winning tickets will share the record Powerball lottery jackpot.  The winning tickets were sold in Arizona and Missouri, specifically in the Kansas City area.  The Powerball jackpot is 587.5-million dollars.  It's the largest Powerball jackpot ever. More than 8.9 million people won some prize in the game last night.

The numbers that were drawn are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and the Powerball number is 6.  Wednesday's jackpot was the accumulation of 15 straight drawings without a grand prize winner over a nearly two-month stretch.
