1 of 2 prize Powerball tickets sold near Phoenix

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Lottery officials say one of the two winning Powerball tickets was sold at a convenience store in suburban Phoenix.

The Arizona ticket was sold at a 4 Sons Food Store in Fountain Hills, Ariz.

That ticket and another sold in Missouri will split the record Powerball jackpot of $587.5 million. That's about $294 million per ticket.

Lottery officials say no one has come forward to claim the prizes, and it wasn't clear Thursday whether the winning tickets were purchased by individuals or groups.

The jackpot is the largest in Powerball history.

The winners could split a cash payout of $384.7 million before taxes, or about $192 million per ticket.

They have six months to claim their prize money.

The Missouri ticket was sold at convenience store about 35 miles north of Kansas City.
