Powerball Numbers Are Finally Official, (Psst) You Lost Again
The Powerball numbers for the historical largest jackpot prize are finally in, nearly 12 hours after they were supposed to be released.
Citing "security protocols," the delay was due to "a participating lottery needing extra time to complete the required security protocols. Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before a drawing can occur."
The official statement from the Multi-State Lottery Association reads,
The Powerball drawing scheduled for Monday, Nov. 7 remains delayed due to one participating lottery needing additional time to process its sales and play data. Powerball has been in communication with the lottery throughout the night as it works to resolve the issue. The delay is unfortunate as the other 47 lotteries were able to complete the required security procedures in a timely fashion.
Like the rest of America, Powerball is eager to hold its drawing for the world record jackpot, however, protecting the integrity of the draw is of upmost importance, even if that means a further delay. Players should hold onto to their tickets. As soon as the required security procedures are completed by the one outstanding lottery, the drawing can proceed.
Thank you to our players for their patience. We look forward to drawing the winning numbers as soon as possible.
Winning Numbers Powerball Drawing 11/7/2022
The winning numbers released by Powerball are 10, 33, 41, 47, and 56. The Powerball number is 10. The Power Play multiplier is 2X.
This story is still developing, but at least we have an answer to what the numbers are at this point.
The initial release of the numbers came not from Powerball's website or official channels, but the verified California Lottery Twitter page, which just tweeted out the numbers with a link to the drawing video.
From there, it was a trickle until the Powerball official website and social media showed the numbers.
