The $1.9 billion Powerball prize drawing was delayed Monday night due to a technical glitch.

Monday night's Powerball drawing, initially set at 10:59 p.m. ET, was delayed owing to what the organization termed a "technical glitch."

When the problem has been rectified, the winning numbers will be posted on and a recording of the drawing will be accessible on the Powerball YouTube channel.

The California Lottery tweeted that the drawing was delayed due to a "participating lottery requiring more time to fulfill the requisite security processes."

The Powerball jackpot grew to $1.9 billion over the weekend, hitting another record when no player won the top prize in the latest drawing on Saturday.

Powerball draws are aired live every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday night from the lottery draw studio in Tallahassee, Florida.

Anticipation over the lottery's anticipated prize money has increased gradually over the previous three months, as hundreds of Powerball games passed without anybody taking home the jackpot in full. 

The latest grand prize was to a winning ticket sold in Pennsylvania in early August, and the reward money has been expanding since then.
