The highest USA Powerball jackpot, which is $580 million, will be split among 2 winners.
The biggest USA Powerball jackpot in the country was won by two tickets – one from Missouri and the other one from Arizona – in last Wednesday’s USA Powerball draw.
The very high demand for USA Powerball lottery tickets has made lottery officials increase the amount of jackpot twice before the Wednesday draw. After summing all the tickets sales, the jackpot prize was recorded at $579.9 million – the biggest in Powerball history.
The Powerball winning number combinations were 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 6 as the Powerball.
The accumulated jackpot prize was the result of 15 consecutive draws with no winner(s). The starting jackpot was $40 million. The Wednesday draw made two ticket holders to become big winners and instant millionaires since they will be splitting the $580 million jackpot.
