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

    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.

    The numbers drawn Wednesday night are: 5, 16, 22, 23, 29 and Powerball of 6.

    Wisconsin also had a bit of luck with some smaller winners of its own.

    State lottery officials say a $1 million ticket was sold in the Milwaukee suburb of West Allis. Ten other tickets won $10,000, including one that was quadrupled because the player bought the Power Play multiplier feature.

    Winners have six months to claim their prizes.

    The next Powerball jackpot is worth $40 million.
