(CNN) -- If you are in Missouri or Arizona, check your lottery tickets. You could be filthy rich.
Tickets for the record-breaking estimated $579 million jackpot were purchased in those states, lottery officials said early Thursday morning.
The winning numbers were 5-23-16-22-29 and the Powerball was 6.
The prize for the lottery -- held in 42 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia -- swelled to historic levels after the jackpot rolled over 16 times without a winner.
It was unclear early Thursday morning where in the two states the winning tickets were sold.
