The delay was due to one participating lottery needing more time to complete necessary pre-draw procedures.

Initially scheduled for 10:59 p.m. Saturday, the drawing eventually took place at 2:29 a.m. Sunday at the Florida Lottery draw studio. The delay was attributed to the requirement of ensuring every ticket sold nationwide is verified against two different computer systems to maintain the game’s integrity.

The jackpot for this drawing soared to an estimated $1.3 billion, with a cash option of $608.9 million. The previous jackpot winner was on Jan. 1, when a player in Michigan snagged $842.4 million.

Here are the winning numbers for the April 6, 2024, drawing: 22 – 27 – 44 – 52 – 69, with the Powerball number 9 and a Powerplay of 3x.

If you missed out on this massive jackpot, don’t worry. Powerball drawings happen three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays at 10:59 p.m. ET. However, remember to check your state’s deadline for purchasing tickets, as it varies.

Despite the delay, excitement remains high for the next drawing. The $1.3 billion jackpot is the fourth-largest in Powerball history, continuing the streak of life-changing prizes offered by the popular lottery game.
