KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Missouri Lottery officials say one of the nation’s two Powerball jackpot winning tickets was sold at a convenience store near Kansas City.
A Missouri Lottery news release Thursday said it was sold at a Trex Mart in Dearborn, about 35 miles north of Kansas City.
The other winning ticket was sold in Arizona. The ticket holders will split a Powerball record $587.5 million jackpot. It wasn’t clear whether the winning tickets were bought by individuals or groups.
Shops that sell the winning Powerball ticket receive $50,000 for selling the winning ticket.
Two other Missouri stores sold $1 million winning lottery tickets Wednesday _ one in Kansas City and one in Joplin.
Wednesday’s winning ticket comes after a Marshall, Mo., man claimed the $258 million Powerball jackpot in 2010.
