Tonight is the $227 million Powerball drawing. The drawing is scheduled to take place at 10:59 p.m. Eastern tonight, Wednesday, April 20. The game can be played in 44 states, plus the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. (To find out which states don’t participate, please see this story.)
If you’re planning to buy tickets, don’t wait until the last minute. Many states stop ticket sales an hour before the drawing is scheduled to take place.
The drawing may have a delay of 10 to 20 seconds due to processing the livestream. It will only play once, so you’ll want to be watching the livestream or have the volume turned up so you don’t miss it.
