Powerball Numbers Drawn After Delay For Record Jackpot Of $2.04 Billion

An estimated $2.04 billion is up for grabs in Powerball’s latest jackpot since a delayed drawing took place on Tuesday morning.

The winning numbers are 10, 33, 41, 47, 56 and Powerball out of 10.

The draw was delayed by about 10 hours as Powerball announced Monday night that the scheduled draw “has been delayed because a participating lottery requires additional time to complete required security protocols.”

“Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before a drawing can take place,” Powerball said in a statement. “Once the required security protocols are complete, the drawing will be conducted under the supervision of lottery security officials and independent auditors.”

The winning numbers were drawn on the Powerball YouTube channel around 9:00 am ET on Tuesday and posted on its website.

The draw began after Powerball managed to solve the issue of one of its 48 lotteries.

Lottery officials had asked players for patience and kept their tickets “as the required security procedures are being completed by the one pending lottery.”

Monday’s jackpot jumped from $1.9 billion to $2.04 billion Tuesday morning, according to a Powerball press release, making it the world’s largest lottery prize ever offered. The present value is $929.1 million.

The jackpot grows based on game sales and interest. But the odds of winning the grand prize remain the same — 1 in 292.2 million, Powerball said.

Monday’s Powerball drawing was the 41st since the jackpot was last won on Aug. 3, and set the game’s record for the number of consecutive draws without a grand prize winner, according to Powerball.

Although there was no jackpot winner, more than 10.9 million tickets won a total of $102.2 million in cash prizes in Saturday night’s final drawing. The overall odds of a prize are 1 in 24.9, Powerball said.

Jackpot winners can receive the money in either instant cash or in 30 annual payments over 29 years. According to Powerball, both advertised pricing options do not include federal and local taxes.

Tickets cost $2 and are sold in 45 US states, as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. More than half of all proceeds remain in the jurisdiction where the ticket was purchased, Powerball said.

Powerball drawings are streamed live from the Florida Lottery drawing studio in Tallahassee every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59pm ET. The draws will also be streamed live online at Powerball.com.
