Winning numbers for record Powerball jackpot

Updated:

(AP)- The the record breaking Powerball jackpot jumped to nearly $580 million dollars Wednesday night.

The winning numbers are: 5,16,22,23,29 and the Powerball of 6.

At one point today tickets were selling at a rate of 130,000 a minute nationwide - about six times the volume from a week ago.

The jackpot has already rolled over 16 consecutive times without a winner, but Powerball officials say they now believe there is a 75 percent chance the winning combination will be drawn this time.

If one ticket hits the right numbers, chances are good that multiple ones will, according to some experts. That happened in the Mega Millions drawing in March, when three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, which remains the largest lottery payout of all time.
