$1M Powerball ticket sold in Winona County; big winners in Ariz., Mo.


Powerball reports that someone in Winona County was a $1 million winner Wednesday night in a record $580 million jackpot drawing that created a national frenzy. The Winona Daily News reports the prize has not yet been claimed.

The winning numbers: 05, 16, 22, 23, 29, and 6.

There were two jackpot winners – in Arizona and Missouri, Powerball officials said. But check your tickets, you may have been among the nearly 9 million people who won a lesser prize. There were $2 million winners in seven states (not in Minnesota) and $1 million winners in 25 states (including Minnesota), according to Powerball.

Six other tickets purchased in Minnesota matched four of the five numbers along with the Powerball, so each of those tickets is worth $10,000, the Associated Press says.

More than 160 million tickets were sold, and at one point Wednesday, 130,000 tickets were being sold every minute nationwide, the Associated Press reports.

There had been 16 consecutive Powerball drawings since Oct. 6 without a jackpot winner, which propelled the jackpot into record territory.

Here's Wednesday night's drawing:
