PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Lottery says it still doesn't have information on who has the winning Powerball ticket sold in state.

Lottery officials say that ticket and another sold in Missouri won the record $579.9 million Powerball jackpot in Wednesday night's drawing.

The Arizona Lottery says that at 10 a.m. MST Thursday it will release retailer's location where the winning ticket was purchased in Arizona.

However, the lottery says "no information about the winner will be available at this time" because no one has come forward yet.

The jackpot is the largest in Powerball history. The cash option would be $379.8 million, before taxes.
