SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- There were no Powerball jackpot-winning tickets sold in Michigan prior to Wednesday night's historic drawing, but there were two tickets worth $1 million sold in the state.

Lottery officials say tickets matching five numbers drawn but not the Powerball were sold at a liquor store in the Grand Rapids suburb of Kentwood and a CVS pharmacy in Dearborn.

The numbers drawn Wednesday night are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6. Powerball officials said early Thursday that tickets sold in Arizona and Missouri matched all six numbers to win the $579.9 million jackpot.

Tickets earlier in the day were selling at a rate of 130,000 a minute nationwide, the mega-jackpot enticing many people who rarely, if ever, play the lottery.
 
Powerball's record jackpot follows a Mega Millions drawing in March, when three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, which remains the largest lottery payout of all time.
