Two people beat the odds to win the Powerball jackpot.

The prize rose to $580-million just before the drawing.

The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night are:

5 -16-22-23-29 and the Powerball of 6.

The two winning tickets were sold in Arizona and Missouri.

The winners will share an estimated $385-million if they take the lump sum.

One local attorney says he has represented five lottery winners, who lost it all.

Two tickets in Illinois matched five numbers. Each player wins $1 million.

The previous top Powerball prize of $365 million was won in 2006 by ConAgra slaughterhouse workers in Nebraska.

A $656 million Mega Millions jackpot set a world lottery record in March. That prize was split three ways. One of the winning tickets was held by Merle and Patricia Butler of Red Bud in southern Illinois. The retired couple took home nearly $119 million.
