Were your Powerball numbers 5-16-22-23-29 and 6 for the Powerball? If yes: You're filthy stinking rich! The Powerball jackpot crossed the $500 million mark in the lead-up to the draw, kicking off a ticket-buying frenzy. On Wednesday, about 130,000 tickets were sold each minute. It's unlikely you won the draw (if you did, what are you doing still reading this? Go out and start buying private islands and space stations!), but don't feel too bad. The odds of taking out the prize were 1 in 175 million and experts tipped a 40 percent likelihood of no one winning at all. [Source]
Update: Lottery officials say that there are two winning tickets - one purchased in Arizona and the other in Missouri.
