(Memphis)  Two lucky ticket holders in Missouri and Arizona are now $579.9 million richer after getting all six numbers in Wednesday night’s huge Powerball drawing.

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

So far, Powerball officials haven’t disclosed where in Arizona and Missouri the winning tickets were sold.

The $579.9 million jackpot is the largest in Powerball history. It is the second largest lottery jackpot in history, second only to last March’s $656 million Mega Millions jackpot.

The jackpot will be reset for Saturday night’s drawing — $40 million will be up for grabs.

You can watch the Powerball drawings during WREG News Channel 3 at 10:00 on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
