(INDIANAPOLIS) - The record-setting Powerball run has come to an end.

Two jackpot-winning tickets - one sold in Arizona and one in Missouri - will split an estimated jackpot of $587.5 million.

The winning numbers in last night's drawing were: 5-16-22-23-29 PB: 6.

A pair of tickets sold at Indiana retailers matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number, and are worth $1 million.

One ticket was purchased at United PSM at 601 Wheatland Road in Vincennes while the other ticket was purchased at Highland Citgo at 8317 Kennedy Avenue in Highland.

In total, Indiana retailers sold more than 206,000 winning Powerball tickets with winnings of more than $3.1 million for last night's drawing.

An additional 24,000 winning Powerball tickets in Indiana included the Power Play option and accounted for an additional $261,900 in prizes.

Hoosier Lottery officials remind players to check their numbers carefully and to sign the back of their tickets immediately.

The mission of the Hoosier Lottery is to maximize net income for the state in a socially-responsible manner.

In fiscal year 2012, the Hoosier Lottery generated $211 million in surplus revenue which was used to significantly reduce the motor vehicle excise tax for all Hoosier drivers and also supported the pension funds for retired Indiana teachers, police and firefighters.

Player prizes for the fiscal year totaled $533 million and $60 million was earned by Indiana retailers on the sale of Hoosier Lottery products.

Since its inception in 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has produced more than $4 billion for the citizens of Indiana, $1 billion in commissions and bonuses for participating Indiana retailers, and has paid out more than $8.8 billion in player prizes.

The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly.
