The record $1.9 billion Powerball drawing has been delayed because a participating lottery had issues processing sales and play data.

"Tonight’s Powerball drawing has been delayed due to a participating lottery needing extra time to complete the required security protocols.

Powerball has strict security requirements that must be met by all 48 lotteries before a drawing can occur," the Multi-state Lottery Association said in a statement.

The Multi-state Lottery Association would not name which state's lottery was experiencing the delay.

"When the required security protocols are complete, the drawing will be performed under the supervision of lottery security officials and independent auditors.

The winning numbers and recorded video of the drawing will be posted to the Powerball website and YouTube channel.

The $1.9 billion jackpot, the biggest in lottery history, is for the winner who chooses an annuity, paid over 29 years. »
