And the lucky numbers are...

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Powerball jackpot rose to more than $550 million. Here are the winning numbers: 5-23-16-22-29 Powerball 06

A record-breaking jackpot of $579 million awaits the owner of the winning ticket.

Tickets for Wednesday night's drawing were reportedly selling at a rate of 130,000 per minute.

Shortly after the drawing, the Powerball website crashed from the traffic.

The results of the drawing remain unknown at this time. Each state lottery must now check to see if a winning ticket was purchased from a vendor in their state.

The jackpot is estimated based on a prediction of ticket sales. It was raised because the ticket sales outpaced the forecast.

This is the largest prize in Powerball history. The case option would be $360.2 million, before taxes.

Although your odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,223,510, your overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 31.85.

According to the Multi-State Lottery Association, Arizona is first in the nation for the increase of Powerball sales during the last week, up nearly 500 percent.
