Numbers were drawn Tuesday morning for Powerball’s $1.9 billion jackpot after a delay of several hours.

The numbers drawn were 56-41-33-47-10, and the Powerball was 10. It was not yet known whether there were any jackpot winners.

The drawing, originally scheduled for Monday night, was delayed for technical reasons, the Michigan Lottery announced on Twitter, because “one participating lottery is still processing its sales and play data.”

Powerball requires all 48 participating lotteries to send in key information before the drawing, the statement said.

“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,” it added.

The record jackpot win is $1.586 billion, set in 2016.

Tuesday’s drawing could be the 41st straight without a winner. The longest previous run was in 2021, when it took 41 drawings before someone clinched a $699.8 million jackpot.
