UNDATED (WSAU) There was a record $587-million Powerball drawing on Wednesday night. The jackpot was raised from $500-million during the day because of brisk ticket sales.
Here are the winning numbers:
5 16 22 23 29
Powerball officials say there were two winning tickets for the grand prize. One was from Arizona. The other was from Missouri.
Wisconsin did have a $1-million winner. A ticket sold at a Speedway station in West Allis matched all five regular numbers but not the Powerball to win the game’s second prize. Ten other people won at least $10,000 by matching four regular numbers plus the Powerball. Those tickets were sold in Appleton, Cross Plains, Fond du Lac, Grand Marsh, Kenosha, Janesville, Marinette, Milwaukee, Montello, and Superior. One of those tickets is worth $40,000 because it had the Power Play option.
Over 188,000 Wisconsin players won smaller prizes. Almost 865 of those people won $100, and another 45 won $200 each.
The Powerball jackpot goes back to 40-million for the next drawing on Saturday night.
