Powerball winning numbers drawn in record $1.9 billion jackpot following delay


The winning Powerball numbers record $1.9 billion drawing were released Tuesday morning after being delayed over a security protocol issue.
The winning numbers are: 10, 33, 41, 47 and 56, with the Powerball of 10.

It was not immediately clear whether any jackpot-winning tickets were sold.
The advertised prize is for winners who receive their winnings through an annuity paid over 29 years. However, winners typically select the cash option
The cash estimate for the jackpot is now $929.1 million.

Powerball officials released a statement earlier Tuesday morning saying one participating lottery was still processing its sales and play data and that all 48 participating lotteries are required to submit their data before the winning numbers can be drawn.
The association said it was against its policy to say which lottery had the delay.

The statement said 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.”
No one has matched all five white numbers plus the red Powerball in 40-straight drawings.

The last grand prize-winner matched all six numbers in Pennsylvania on Aug. 3, taking home the $206.9 million jackpot.
