After a 10-hour delay, we finally know the winning Powerball numbers: 10, 33, 41, 47, 56, plus 10 for the red Powerball itself.
The results of the drawing, with a record $1.9 billion jackpot, had been delayed because of a security issue. The drawing was originally set for 10:59 p.m. Monday EST.
Officials with the Multi-State Lottery Association, the organization behind the game, said Monday night that the delay was “due to a participating lottery needing extra time to complete the required security protocols. Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before a drawing can occur.”
There are 45 states that participate in Powerball, plus Washington, D.C., the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
This isn’t the first time that there’s been a delay with Powerball results. On Oct. 19, there was an hour-long delay because of a similar issue.
