(Undated) - Indiana has two new millionaires thanks to Wednesday’s record Powerball drawing.
Highland resident Larry Chandler purchased a $1 million ticket at a Citgo station in Highland, seated in northwest Indiana. He says he plans to use the money to help his mother, start a college fund for his daughter, and take his girlfriend out to eat at Red Lobster.
The electrician will also use the money to keep his home, which had been in foreclosure.
Bruceville resident Pat Wilkerson says she's splitting her $1 million winnings with her two children. She purchased her ticket at United PSM in Vincennes.
According to the Hoosier Lottery, Indiana retailers sold more than 206,000 winning Powerball tickets with winnings of more than $3.1 million in Wednesday’s drawing. An additional 24,000 winning Powerball tickets in Indiana included the Power Play option and accounted for an additional $261,900 in prizes.
One $1 million ticket was sold in Kentucky in Oldham County.
Wednesday’s jackpot was a record $587.5 million. When it was all said and done, two tickets -- one sold in Arizona and one in Missouri -- matched all six numbers and will split the jackpot.
Wednesday’s winning numbers were 5, 16, 22, 23, 29, and Powerball 6.
