Powerball winning numbers drawn as jackpot soars to $394 million

The winning numbers were 5, 10, 21 34 and 58, lottery officials said. The Powerball was 33. It was not yet known whether anyone had won.

Powerball jackpots start at $40 million and grow until at least one player comes up with the winning number at a drawing.

The jackpot winners receive either payments over 29 years or a smaller cash lump sum. The cash option for the jackpot was in excess of $250 million.
