Powerball announces slight delay in final results
Unfortunately, there was a slight delay in the final draw results for the last Powerball drawing on Wednesday, June 9. Most importantly, the delay seemed only to affect the calculation of Saturday’s jackpot and winning tickets to be paid out.
Fortunately, the majority of jurisdictions did not have any issues verifying the number of winners that resulted. However, one jurisdiction required additional processing time to verify winners in each prize tier.
Certainly, delays can be frustrating. Yet, this delay was a short one and only affected one jurisdiction. Furthermore, Powerball released another update later in the day that stated that results were finalized. Therefore, retailers could start paying out winners again.
