Looks like the official Powerball site is offline right now, so some extra traffic is coming our way.  The site will probably be very slow and probably not reachable for a little while after 11:00 pm.  Please be patient, and things will slowly clear up soon.

        Around 11:00 PM EST, I couldn't get in LP because the traffic was at a standstill. Clusters of heavy traffic... But now it's good on my end. I am on my iPhone though... I'm gonna go on my PC to see how LP is working there, now.

        Thanks for the heads-up Todd!

            New meltdown coming... single ticket winning $561m. Maybe not so much if it was a pool, but a single individual winning will make people go bonkers...

                There are probably a few making plans already for the winner, they're just waiting for he/she to come forward before springing it on them.

                  The powerball site is terrible. Showed my neighbor how usamega reports the numbers before any state and he was blown away.

                    The Powerball website has so many things wrong with it: design, consistency, navigation, and the list goes on. You would think that an entity dealing with so much money would have a top notch professional website, but that is not the case with the Powerball site. And what is up with the ads on the official Powerball site?

                      Interesting to see the huge spike in traffic on the graph.

                              I didn't want to mislead anyone. I just thought it was cool that I found the graph that shows the spike to 321,000 unique users for the day after the big drawing. I don't know if it happened after midnight, or all the next day with people trying to figure out who won? But cool none the less.
