A half billion dollars could have been yours in the latest Powerball drawing. In fact, so many people were checking out the Powerball website Wednesday night that the server was slow to respond and appeared down at times shortly after the 11 p.m. drawing.
According to powerball.com, two winning tickets were sold, one in Arizona and one in Missouri. Connecticut, however, had a $2 million Match 5 winner and a $1 million Match 5 winner. No word yet on where the tickets were sold.
The winning Powerball numbers for the Nov. 28, 2012, drawing are 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and a Powerball number of 6.
