The results of Wednesday’s Powerball drawing are all in so winners can now claim their prizes.
We have a new jackpot amount for Saturday: $31 million as an annuity or $21.3 million cash. The results from Wednesday’s drawing are posted on our website here. And all lottery retailers and our claims centers can now pay out prizes won in the drawing.
Winners faced a long delay Thursday because one of the jurisdictions that provides the Powerball game needed more time to complete verification of its winners. Everyone offering the game must complete their processes before claims can be paid.
We regret you had to wait longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.

I thought it was really unusual that the Powerball result was listed as “pending”. Your explanation makes sense. I do have one suggestion: When someone wins the jackpot, it would be nice to know which state gets all of that income tax revenue!
