Incorrect winning numbers reported for Powerball lottery in Iowa

Incorrect winning numbers reported for Powerball lottery in Iowa

Powerball losers in Iowa were actually winners for seven hours this week after the state lottery mistakenly released the game’s winning numbers.

Lottery officials blamed unspecified “human error” for showing the wrong numbers for Monday night’s Powerball drawing. The wrong numbers were posted on the Iowa Lottery website around 12:30 p.m., and it wasn’t until 7:15 a.m. that anyone spotted the error, entered the numbers, and stopped paying.

The lottery said incorrect initial numbers could have resulted in prizes ranging from $4 to $200 _ officials did not say how many won. Whoever wakes up early and cashes the winning ticket gets to keep the money. Monday night’s Powerball jackpot was estimated at $355 million.

The state lottery will adjust its system by 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and begin cashing winning Powerball tickets. With the right numbers, 3,998 people who bought Powerball tickets in Iowa also won prizes ranging from $4 to $200. The actual winning numbers in the Monday Night Powerball drawing are 2-21-38-61-66 and Powerball 12.
