BOISE -- At least two people woke up Thursday morning as multi-millionaires in the latest Powerball mega jackpot.

One Powerball ticket in Arizona and one in Missouri matched all six numbers. The winners will split the record $587,500,000 jackpot. They could split a cash payout of $384.7 million before taxes, or about $192 million per ticket.

However, one Idaho lottery player will also be getting a big check.

Idaho Lottery spokesman David Workman tells KTVB that one lucky player in Idaho won a million dollars Wednesday night. The winning ticket was sold in Boise and matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball.

The winning numbers are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and the winning Powerball number is 6.

We are encouraging everyone who played Powerball for last night's draw to check their tickets carefully for winners. Too often we see players not match the Powerball and think they do not have a winning ticket. In this case, the ticket matched all five of the first numbers and is worth $1 million, said Idaho Lottery Director Jeff Anderson.

There were 56,937 winning tickets in Idaho that won a total of $1,344,813. Two of those winning tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number. Both of those tickets are worth $10,000 each. Those were sold in Caldwell and Meridian.

Last night's million dollar winner and the two $10,000 winners have 180 days to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.

Missouri Lottery officials say one of the nation's two Powerball jackpot winning tickets was sold at a convenience store near Kansas City.

A Missouri Lottery news release Thursday said it was sold at a Trex Mart in Dearborn, about 35 miles north of Kansas City.

Arizona Lottery officials say one of the two winning Powerball tickets was sold at a convenience store in suburban Phoenix.

The Arizona ticket was sold at a 4 Sons Food Store in Fountain Hills.

It wasn't clear whether the winning tickets were bought by individuals or groups.

Shops that sell the winning Powerball ticket receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.
