Beautiful Disappointment: Powerball’s $1.3B Jackpot Delayed

“The Powerball lottery draw, set for Saturday night, got postponed. They need to finish some stuff before announcing the numbers. The organizers said they needed more time to do what’s needed. The jackpot’s around $1.3 billion.

They’re making sure everything’s right before revealing the numbers at 10:59 p.m. ET.”

“The Powerball game rules say every ticket must be checked twice by computers before picking the winning numbers. This makes sure every ticket has an equal chance to win. Tonight, one place needs more time to finish this check.”
