***The Powerball drawing has been delayed due to a technical difficulty and it is unknown how long the drawing will be delayed***
After rising to another world-record, this time nearing $2 billion, many are buying into the hope of winning the next Powerball jackpot.
Drawings are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at exactly 9:59 p.m. CT.
Here’s a handy countdown so you know just how much longer you have to wait.
As of this article’s writing, if someone won the $1.9 billion jackpot they could either take their winnings via an annual payment over 30 years or a cash option valued at $929.12 million.
Monday, November 7 will be the 40th drawing of the Powerball since it’s last jackpot was won in an August 3 drawing by a player in Pennsylvania. That jackpot was $202 million.
If nobody wins the top prize in this next drawing it will break the game record for the number of consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner.
