VINCENNES, IND. (WTHI) - Two people hit all of the numbers and will be splitting $587-million from Wednesday night's Powerball Drawing.
The big tickets were sold in Missouri and Arizona, but the winning didn't stop there.
A pair of tickets were sold in Indiana that matched all of the numbers except the Powerball making them worth a cool million each.
One was sold at a convenience store in Vincennes.
Pat Wilkerson of Bruceville and her daughter Michelle Cummins of Vincennes had one million reasons to smile as they claimed their prize in Indianapolis.
Wilkerson bought the ticket at a convenience store in Vincennes this week and is also sharing the winnings with her son Sean.
They didn't hit the jackpot, but matched 5 numbers setting off a celebration in the store.
"We got big news," said store owner Surinder Singh. "It's exciting because somebody win a million dollars from our store."
The place was very busy during the final days leading up to the half billion dollar drawing with a lot of it going toward lottery sales.
"Maybe I sold the ticket because yesterday after 6 o'clock I was here you know," said Singh.
The owner and his partner say they don't know who they sold the winning ticket to.
Just the same there are plenty of reasons for them to be excited.
That's because the store will receive at least $10,000 for selling the million dollar ticket.
"That's true," said Singh. "That's right. We won something. We got something."
` So even though the giant prize may have gone elsewhere, the Powerball did leave some cash behind in southern Indiana.
The Hoosier Lottery says the second million dollar ticket was claimed by Larry Chandler of Highland, Indiana.
He plans to use the money to help his mother, take his girlfriend out to dinner and start a college fund for his daughter.
Just in case you missed those numbers..here they are again..5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and the Powerball of 6.
