(WJW) — After a delay on Saturday’s Powerball drawing, the winning numbers were released hours later.
Powerball said in a press release that Saturday’s drawing was delayed until 2:35 a.m. CT because a participating lottery needed extra time to complete the required security protocols.
The release says in part: “Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before and after each drawing to produce official draw results. Without the draw results, the next estimated jackpot cannot be calculated and, in some jurisdictions, prizes on winning tickets cannot be paid.”
Here are the winning numbers drawn on Saturday, April 9: 06-16-31-62-66 Powerball-18
You are encouraged to hold on to your tickets until more information is known and retailers are able to pay prizes on winning tickets from the April 9 Powerball drawing.
The drawing can be seen in a recorded video posted to the Powerball website and the Powerball YouTube channel.
The site currently lists the jackpot amount at $268 million with a cash value of $171 million – the amount before Saturday’s drawing.
Drawings are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11 p.m.
