UPDATE: (AP) One of the two winning Powerball tickets for an estimated $587.5 million jackpot was sold in the Kansas City area.
Missouri Lottery spokesman Gary Gonder says the winner has not yet come forward Thursday to claim the record prize, but there is no rush. The winner has 180 days to do so.
Gonder says he is traveling to the store that sold the winning ticket to help with an expected onslaught of media attention. Missouri Lottery officials plan to announce the identity of the retailer later Thursday.
The other winning Powerball ticket was sold in Arizona. The Missouri Lottery says two $1 million winning Powerball tickets were also sold in the state one in Joplin and the other in Kansas City.
It's the second largest Jackpot in history, and the largest ever for Powerball.
The next 6 numbers could change someone's life forever.
Here they are, the winning powerball numbers that could make someone 550 million dollars richer:
5, 23, 16, 22,29 and Powerball of 6
So what would you do with all that cash? We hit area stores to find out how Quad Citians would spend their jackpot money.
From traveling to paying off bills, local lottery players say they can think of a million ways to spend the dough.
"I'm going to buy a Corvette and pay off the house," said Greg Frew.
"I'd go straight to Las Vegas," said Stella Lucas.
Big plans for the largest Poweball Jackpot in history, and folks we talked to are feeling lucky.
"These are the winners right here, and I got four of them," said John Flowers who has been playing the lottery for 20 years.
He says this jackpot is just too big to keep all to himself, "I'm going to give about half of it to charity."
And some folks we talked to say they're not only in the spirit of giving, but celebrating too,"I'd give a bunch to my friends' and then I'd have a heck of a party that will probably last till the end of time," said Steve Humphreys.
The estimated cash payout is 360.2 million dollars.
