Did Anyone Win the $2.4 Billion Powerball Jackpot?
Monday night's Powerball drawing for a jackpot worth an unprecedented $2.4 billion was delayed due to security protocols but was finally drawn Tuesday morning.
The numbers drawn were 10 – 33 – 41 – 47 - 56 and Powerball 10. The Power Play multiplier was 2X. One ticket sold in California matched the five white numbers and Powerball won the jackpot which had a cash value of $997.6 million.
The drawing should have happened at 10:59 p.m. Monday night. Because one of the 48 participating lotteries was still processing its sales and play data, the drawing could not happen, according to a statement from the Multi-State Lottery Association posted by the California Lottery on its Twitter account.
The association told the Associated Press it is against their policy to name the state causing the delay.
"Powerball has stringent security requirements to protect the integrity of the game and remains committed to holding a drawing that gives all players a fair chance to win," game officials said in their statement.
Powerball has delayed their drawing at least two other times in 2022, in compliance with their security protocols.
