The $1.9 billion Powerball Monday was delayed due to technical difficulties.
This drew an intense reaction due to it being a record high, an estimated $1.90 billion. That would be roughly a cash payout of $929.1 million.
Those waiting at 9:59 pm for the drawing Monday night, things got a bit heated when Powerball released a statement saying the record-drawing had been delayed “due to a participating lottery needing extra time to complete the required security protocols.” They need to collect all tickets before releasing results.
There is no set time for the drawing to take place. Do not throw away your ticket or destroy it!
