UPDATE 1 p.m.

Idaho Lottery officials confirmed that nearly 57,000 tickets purchased in Idaho won a total of $1,344,813.

But $1 million of that total will go the person (or persons) that purchased a ticket in Boise.That ticket matched all five of the winning numbers but not the Powerball number. Two more tickets, also purchased in Boise, are worth $10,000. Those tickets matched four of the first five numbers and the Powerball number. The remainder of the winnings will be spread out to more than 56,900 other players.

Winners have 180 days to claim their prizes form the Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.



The big winners in Wednesday night's Powerball drawing were in Arizona and Missouri, each having the exact numbers of 5-16-22-23-29 and the winning powerball number of 6. The winners will be splitting a jackpot of close to $580 million.

But Idaho Lottery officials said one Idaho Lottery player will also be pretty happy. Officials confirmed that at least one lucky player won $1 million in the drawing Wednesday night, though officials haven't yet announced where the winning ticket was sold.

One more time. The winning numbers were:

5-16-22-23-29 and the winning powerball number was 6.
