Power Ball Draw Delay:
The Powerball drawing scheduled for Monday, Nov. 7 remained delayed. Currently, one participating lottery is still processing its sales and play data. Powerball requires all 48 participating lotteries to submit their sales and play data prior to winning numbers being selected. Once Powerball receives the outstanding submission, the drawing can proceed.
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.
Due to the length of the draw delay, it is likely that we will not know the official results of Powerball drawing until Tuesday morning. Players should hold onto their tickets.
Check back for updates as ECT will also post the winning numbers.
