Record Powerball Finally Announced In New York, Winning Numbers
After a very long delay, the record Powerball drawing was finally announced. Here are the winning numbers.
The record Powerball drawing was delayed Monday night and it remained delayed as of 9 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Record Powerball Drawing Delayed
"The draw has been officially delayed. One of the participating lotteries needs extra time to complete its security protocols," Powerball released in a statement at 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday. "Drawings can only be held once all 48 participating lotteries have met their security protocols, and the Multi-State Lottery Association has issued a statement to explain that one state was not ready on time."
The $1.9 billion Powerball was scheduled for 10:59 p.m., Monday night.
On Tuesday at 9:06 a.m., the record drawing was finally held.
Record Powerball Drawing Winning Numbers
The winning numbers for the record drawing are 10, 33, 41, 47 and 56, with a Powerball of 10.

No Jackpot Winner
Powerball confirmed no one hit the record jackpot. That means the record jackpot rolls over once again. Wednesday's drawing will be worth $2.3 billion.
"The individual states will release their own prize details in due course, but the jackpot has rolled again! The grand prize will be worth an estimated $2.3 billion for the next drawing on Wednesday," Powerball stated.
Update: 1:30 p.m.
California lottery officials confirmed Tuesday afternoon a California resident did in fact hit the jackpot for Tuesday's drawing.
"California Lottery makes its FIRST EVER Billionaire! One lucky ticket sold at Joe’s Service Center in Altadena matched all 6 numbers in the November 7 #Powerball draw. The final jackpot amount for this draw came to $2.04 BILLION dollars," the California Lottery stated.
It's unclear at this time why officials first reported there was no jackpot winner.
The jackpot for Tuesday's Powerball is at least $1.9 billion, which would be the highest prize claimed in the Powerball's history.
The Powerball jackpot keeps growing because no one won the jackpot for Saturday's $1.6 billion jackpot. That would have also set a Powerball jackpot.
While no one won Saturday's jackpot 16 tickets sold across the United States, including one in the Empire State, won at least $1 million
$1 Million Powerball Winner Sold in Newburgh, Orange County
A second-prize ticket for the Nov. 5 Powerball drawing was sold in the Town of Newburgh. The winning ticket was sold at the Smokes 4 Less located at 59 North Plank Road. This marks the second straight Powerball that a million-dollar ticket was sold at the Newburgh store.
Despite no one hitting the jackpot, many nearly 1 million tickets sold in New York State are winners. These tickets won a combined $5.9 million.
If you plan on buying a ticket for Monday's record jackpot, it might make sense to head to Newburgh!
