Powerball winning numbers for Monday, Nov. 7, 2022

Monday’s jackpot jumped to a record $1.9 billion. Only four previous jackpots exceeded $1 billion.

WASHINGTON – Monday’s Powerball drawing for its biggest-ever jackpot was delayed because of a technical problem, the lottery said during a live broadcast. Results will be posted on Powerball’s website as soon as they can conduct a draw, the showrunner said.

In an emailed statement to queries from the Associated Press, the Multistate Lottery Association said the delay was the result of a participating lottery that needed more time to process its sales. “We still plan to hold the Powerball draw tonight,” the statement said, though there was no specific time.

This is the second delayed drawing in the past three weeks. When the drawing was delayed last month, the delay lasted less than an hour. The same reason was given for the delay in October.

“Powerball has strict security requirements that all 48 lottery prizes must meet before a draw can occur,” the website says.

The current grand prize has risen to new heights – an estimated $1.9 billion – after another no-win draw on Saturday.

Only four previous jackpots have exceeded $1 billion, although they are all significantly behind the current one, which started at $20 million on Aug. 6 and has grown more than fivefold. in the past three months.

Despite Saturday’s lack of major prize winners, some became millionaires after Saturday’s draw. There have been 16 $1 million winners across Florida, California, Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New Jersey, South Dakota, New York, Michigan, Missouri and Pennsylvania. Only one person in Kentucky has won $2 million, thanks to the Power Play option.

Even when the grand prize is closer to $2 billion, the odds of winning are low – 1 in 292.2 million.

If there were no winners on Monday, the jackpot would have set another record of 41 spins with no major winners.

Lottery craze has taken over gas stations and grocery stores across America. Even with the ongoing sales boost, Saturday’s drawing only covers 62% of all possible number combinations. In context, this is still lower than the 88.6% achieved for the previous record jackpot in 2016.

Winners will receive $1.9 billion over 29 years if they choose to annuity. Almost all of the winners chose cash, which amounted to $929.1 million for Monday’s draw.

Over the past few years, lottery officials have changed the rules and prices to increase the top prizes, leading to more and more huge lottery jackpots. As part of a new strategy to boost sales and prizes, Powerball added a third draw day to its weekly schedule in August.

The previous biggest prize was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot won by three ticket holders in 2016. After a winning ticket matched the draw, the Powerball jackpot started again at 20 million. dollars and keep increasing every spin until the prize is won.

Powerball is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
