One winning ticket sold on record Powerball drawing

There’s a single winning ticket for last night’s massive $2.04-billion Powerball jackpot.

The winning numbers were announced earlier today after a security problem delayed them being revealed for about 9 hours.

The winning ticket for largest jackpot in U.S. history was purchased in Los Angeles County, California.

The Powerball jackpot pushed past $2-billion-dollars because no one won the lottery drawing for $1.6-billion-dollars on Saturday night.

It had been three months since someone hit the Powerball jackpot.

Delaware hasn’t had a Powerball jackpot winner since December 2016 when a winning ticket worth nearly $122-million was sold at a Selbyville-area gas station.
