    Hoosier Lottery officials say Indiana retailers sold two tickets that just missed winning a share of the giant Powerball jackpot.

    While the two winning tickets for the estimated $580 million jackpot were sold in Arizona and Missouri, two tickets sold in Indiana are worth $1 million each.

    Lottery officials say those tickets were sold at convenience stores in Vincennes and Highland. Those tickets matched the first five numbers, but not the Powerball number.
