JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – They didn’t win the record $590.5 million Powerball jackpot, Saturday night (someone in Florida did), but they came closer than the rest of us.
Missouri Lottery officials say two ticket-buyers in the state matched five of the six numbers drawn, so they win a million dollars apiece.
One lucky ticket was sold at Sam’s Liquor Store in south St. Louis County, the other in the southeast Missouri town of Doniphan.

Ticket holders have until November 13th to claim their prizes.
The winning Powerball numbers drawn Saturday May 18, 2013 were: 10-13-14-22-52 with a Powerball of 11.
