TUCSON - Powerball players kept cashiers busy Wednesday.
The multi-state lottery was worth a record $580 million.
The winning numbers were 5, 23, 16, 22, 29 and the Powerball was 6.

"It gets very busy," he said. "We get stuck basically behind the register until the machine closes down."
Customers spent their money despite the odds.
"It's one in millions," Liz Rome said, "but it only takes one ticket to win."
Lee Phillips spent $6 on tickets.
"What's going to happen is somebody with one foot on a banana peel and the other one in the grave is going to buy one ticket and they're going to hit it," he said.
Kim Snyder's family pooled together $140.
"If we don't win the big one, I'm hoping we win at least $5 or something," Snyder said, "because I never win anything."
