(CNN) -- Tickets for the record-breaking estimated $579 million jackpot were purchased in Missouri and Arizona lottery officals said early Thursday morning.
The winning numbers were 5-23-16-22-29 and the Powerball was 6.
The prize grew to historic levels after the jackpot rolled over 16 times without a winner.
It was unclear early Thursday morning where in the two states the winning tickets were sold.
Wednesday's prize is the largest in Powerball history.
