CHICAGO– The Powerball winning numbers for the $2.04 billion jackpot were drawn Tuesday morning after a long delay.
The winning numbers are 10-33-41-47-56 and the Powerball is 10.
The draw was delayed as lottery officials worked to complete “required security protocols.”
In a statement released Monday night, lottery officials noted that one participating lottery is still processing its sales and play data. The Multi-State Lottery Association has declined to name the state that caused the delay.
Powerball rules state that all requirements from all 48 lotteries must be met before the drawing takes place. When these are completed, the draw will take place.
“Powerball has been in contact with the lottery throughout the night to resolve the issue,” the statement said. “The delay is unfortunate as the other 47 lotteries were able to complete the necessary security procedures in a timely manner.”
Once safety procedures are in place, the draw can take place, but it’s unclear exactly when that will be.
The winning numbers and the video of the drawing were published on the Powerball website and YouTube channel. Players were advised to keep their tickets.
Across the country, some waited in line for hours to buy tickets, saying, “The line is getting longer and people are going further in”; “There’s a lot of zeros on it” and “You can’t win if you don’t play.”
It’s not the first delay for this jumbo jackpot.
Last month, the Powerball lottery delayed a draw when the jackpot was $508 million.
In this case, the numbers were finally drawn about an hour after a “technical problem”. Officials did not explain what the problem was.
The jackpot is at an all-time high, surpassing the previous lottery record of $1.586 billion from a Powerball jackpot in 2016. The grand prize was shared by three winners in California, Florida and Tennessee at the time.
The jackpot has a cash value of $929.1 million.
The jackpot grew after no one claimed the grand prize for Saturday’s drawing. The winning numbers were: 28 45 53 56 69 and Powerball 20
