If you purchased a Powerball ticket in hopes of scoring the jackpot — a record-breaking $1.9 billion — you had to wait a bit longer than expected to reveal if luck is on your side.
The drawing, initially scheduled for late Monday night, was delayed because of issues with a single state processing ticket sales, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. But the winning numbers were released this morning:
10, 33, 41, 47 and 56, with another 10 as the Powerball.
It’s not yet clear if anyone has matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, which has grown for months after 40 straight drawings without a winner set off a frenzy of ticket-buying across the country.
If there is a winner, they would receive the largest payout in U.S. lottery history, a whopping $929.1 million.
But taxes would take a big bite out of that. A 24% federal tax withholding would reduce the cash prize by $223 million, with more likely due at tax time.
If there is no winner for the latest drawing, the current jackpot will grow even larger, topping $2 billion.
The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
