Winning Powerball tickets sold in Missouri and Arizona

POWERBALL

(CNN) — If you are in Missouri or Arizona, check your lottery tickets. You could be filthy rich.

Tickets for the record-breaking estimated $579 million jackpot were purchased in those states, lottery officials said early Thursday morning.

The winning numbers were 5-23-16-22-29 and the Powerball was 6.

The prize for the lottery — held in 42 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia — swelled to historic levels after the jackpot rolled over 16 times without a winner.

It was unclear early Thursday morning where in the two states the winning tickets were sold.
