There must be a problem with the Powerball draw since the results have not be posted yet. I have never seen results delayed this long.

      That could be where the problem lies. If New York is having computer problems, they would not be able to finalize their state draws along with the multi-state games they participate in such as Powerball.

          Yes, the winning numbers were posted but not the results. That is, number of winners in each prize category and the size of the jackpot for the June 12 draw.

            California Lottery appears to be one of the few jurisdictions acknowledging the problem. The following appears on their website:

            We are currently experiencing technical issues that affect the Powerball Jackpot amount. Our staff is working to resolve the issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.

              At this point they should invalidate the draw and start over again for Saturday's draw.

                Here's the story behind the delay.

                What goes around comes around.

                  And what would be the message to those persons holding winning tickets for the June 9 draw?

                    I didn't play PB last night but noticed that it took an extra hour to show where the 5+0 tickets were sold in Superlotto Plus game yesterday night.

                        Better luck next time.

                        They should invalidate any wins also because the wins would be under extremely suspicious circumstances.

                          Thanks Mr-B 216

                          It states:

                          "A processing issue in one of the states or territories where Powerball is played has delayed detailed results for the June 9 drawing and resulted in players being unable to cash in winning tickets for the time being. According to a press release posted on the Powerball website, the extra processing time is necessary to ensure the proper payments go out to players and that the next jackpot is the correct amount."

                          "Powerball is offered in 44 States, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

                          However, the winning numbers announced during the drawing Wednesday night are correct and players are assured those numbers are accurate.

                          The winning numbers are: 19-28-46-50-54

                          Powerball: 9

                          Power Play: 2

                          Powerball officials didn’t say exactly what caused the problem, but assured players they will be able to claim their winnings once the processing issue is solved."

                          "The Powerball drawing from last night is complete and winning numbers have been posted to the Powerball website. There has been a delay in finalizing the draw results that will allow the jackpot for the next drawing to be calculated and winning tickets to be paid. While the majority of jurisdictions were able to verify the number of winners in each prize tier quickly, additional processing time was required for one jurisdiction.  While we apologize for the delay in delivering the information to the public, the additional time enables us to ensure that we are reporting the official and verified number of prize winners. Please hold on to your tickets, and we will let you know when retailers are able to make claims on winning tickets from the June 9, 2021 drawing.”

                            "That could be where the problem lies."

                            Apparently. Sometime between about 9AM and 9:30PM NY posted a notice that says "There has been a delay in finalizing draw results and prize payments for the following games: Powerball (all tickets) and for the 6/9 draw, New York Lotto, Cash4Life and Take 5. Please hold onto your tickets until resolved."

                            Whatever happened somehow affected 3 of NY's games, and incidentally screwed up PB in the process. Maybe MUSL doesn't want to tell people where the blame lies, but I feel pretty comfortable telling people it's in NY.

                              This should be resolved bye close of business Friday we are in 2021 how long does it take to validate tickets and drawing results.  Laziness on the lotteries part because they now they have the players over a barrel.-weshar75
