Powerball jackpot at $1.9 billion for Monday drawing

After no one matched all six numbers in Saturday’s drawing, the Powerball’s record jackpot increased to an estimated $1.9 billion. The projected cash option for the drawing on Monday, Nov. 7 is now $929.1 million, according to a statement released by Powerball on Sunday.

According to the Powerball website, the greatest lottery reward in the world also tied the record for the most consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner. The Powerball jackpot has now rolled 40 times since the last time it was won on August 3.

This year, there were similar delays for the Powerball drawings on April 9 and October 19. The only other Powerball jackpot streak of 41 consecutive draws without a grand prize winner, according to lottery officials, came to an end on October 4, 2021, when a ticket purchased in California won the $699.8 million jackpot.

According to Drew Svitko, Powerball product group chair and executive director of the Pennsylvania lottery, “Like the rest of America and the world, I think we’re all excited to find out when this historic prize will finally be won.”
As the anticipation grows, we want to remind players that Powerball was created as a lighthearted and reasonably priced form of entertainment, Svitko added.

“Please, know the odds and play within your limits. It only takes one ticket to win,” Svitko said in the statement.

Monday Powerball drawing delayed for “security protocols”

According to a statement released by Powerball late Monday, Monday’s drawing was postponed “due to a participating lottery needing additional time to execute the essential security processes.”
Before a drawing can take place, “Powerball has severe security criteria that are met by all 48 lotteries,” according to the statement.

“The drawing will be conducted under the observation of lottery security personnel and independent auditors once the necessary security processes have been completed.” The winning numbers and a video recording of the drawing will be uploaded to the Powerball website and YouTube channel, according to Powerball.

On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. ET, drawings typically take place. According to a tweet from the California Lottery, “there is no anticipated time for the drawing.”
On social media, several users claimed that the delay before Election Day might be an indication of what to anticipate from the results of Tuesday’s midterm elections.

Did anyone win the Powerball Saturday?

In a statement released early on Sunday, lottery authorities denied that anyone had won the jackpot.
The anticipated grand prize increased from $1.6 billion to $1.657 billion on Saturday. The estimated cash value increased from $782.4 million to $810.2 million.

No one won the jackpot, but more than 10.9 million tickets won cash prizes worth a combined $102.2 million in the drawing on November 5. 16 tickets that matched five white balls each won $1 million, while a Kentucky ticket that matched all five white balls and included the Power Play option won a prize of $2 million. 51 and 219 tickets, respectively, each won a prize of $150,000 and $50,000 nationwide.
