JEFFERSON CITY — A Powerball ticket sold in Dearborn matched all six Powerball numbers drawn last night to win half of the $587.5 million jackpot. At $293.7 million, this is the largest jackpot prize ever won in Missouri and the second-largest Powerball jackpot awarded nationwide.

The ticket was sold at Trex Mart, 17605 Highway Z, in Dearborn, according to a press release. The winning numbers were: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29, and the Powerball number was 6.

The Missouri winner has 180 days to claim this prize.

Missouri Lottery offices are located in Kansas City, Jefferson City, St. Louis and Springfield. Maps to each office can be found on the "Contact Us" page of the Lottery's website at MOLottery.com.

Trex Mart will also receive a bonus check for $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.

"The retailer and winner are not the only ones to benefit from this record jackpot," said Reardon. "Public education benefits greatly. Missouri Powerball sales for this jackpot run, which started Oct. 3, were more than $28.8 million, which means more than $10.7 million of those sales will benefit public education."

The release stated Missouri players won more than $3 million in other prizes, including two tickets that were worth $1 million each and eight tickets worth $10,000.
