Minnesota Lottery says it was responsible for delay in $2 billion Powerball drawing
November 9, 2022
The Minnesota Lottery said Tuesday it was responsible for the nearly half-day delay in the latest Powerball drawing, which eventually yielded a single $2 billion winning ticket.
Once the drawing was conducted Tuesday morning, a Powerball ticket bought in Southern California hit for the record $2.04 billion jackpot after more than three months without anyone matching the numbers for the top prize.
The Multi-State Lottery Association said Monday's drawing scheduled for 9:59 p.m. CST was delayed by nearly 10 hours until Tuesday because a participating lottery had issues processing sales.
