LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Two Powerball tickets sold in Kentucky barely missed out on an estimated $590.5 million grand prize, but they're worth $1 million each.

Kentucky Lottery officials said Sunday that one ticket sold in Vine Grove and another sold in Buckner matched five numbers but not the Powerball drawn Saturday night.

Each ticketholder can claim a $1 million prize. There's no word yet on who won.

Lottery officials say they should bring their winning tickets to lottery headquarters in Louisville any time after 8 a.m. Monday to claim their prizes.

A Powerball ticket sold at a supermarket in Zephyrhills, Fla., matched all six numbers for the estimated $590.5 million prize. It's the highest Powerball jackpot in history.

The winning numbers were 10, 13, 14, 22 and 52, with a Powerball of 11.



DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Powerball officials say the jackpot has climbed to an estimated $600 million, making it the largest prize in the game's history and the world's second largest lottery prize.

Lottery officials say the prize is growing quickly Friday because so many people have been purchasing the $2 tickets. The jackpot has grown by an estimated $236 million since the last drawing on Wednesday.

The last jackpot was won on March 30, so it's been growing for about six weeks. The next drawing is Saturday night.

The largest jackpot ever was a $656 million Mega Millions prize won in March 2012. The prize was split three ways with winners in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.

Odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are about 1 in 175 million.
