UPDATE: A Powerball ticket sold in Dearborn matched all six Powerball numbers drawn last night to win half of the $587.5 million jackpot.

The winning numbers were: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29, and the Powerball
A little more than five months ago, a Los Angeles woman bought a lottery ticket at Michael’s Market & Liquor. She then left it in her car and forgot about it, obviously not that enthused with her 18 million-to-one odds of hitting the jackpot.

The Missouri Lottery reports that a woman from Ionia has won a major lotto prize. Geraldine Carrico of Ionia followed her hunch about a Missouri Lottery "Cash Ka-Pow" Scratchers ticket and ended up winning a $20,000 top prize. Carrico, 65, bought the winning ticket at Rush Hour 9, 1320 South Limit in Sedalia on June 15.
