Tonight, the second-largest jackpot in Powerball’s history is up for grabs. If you bought a ticket for a chance at winning an estimated $700 million, then you’ll definitely want to watch the results live as they happen, whether you’re watching online or on TV.
If you want to watch the Powerball drawing online live tonight at 10:59 pm Eastern/9:59 pm Central, there’s only one place to go.
You can livestream it at the Powerball MegaMillions website.
If you miss the live stream, a video of the drawing will be posted later at this link.
(Note: At times, the live stream has trouble connecting, so you might want to have a backup set up to watch it on TV. If you cannot access the live stream, a video of the drawing will be posted about 30 minutes after the drawing here at Powerball.com. You can also catch a livestream at WRAL.)
Don’t wait until the last minute to visit the website and think you’ll be able to watch the drawing. There may be a large number of people visiting and trying to watch at the same time. Instead, open the page early and just leave the page open on your computer. The drawing may have a delay of 10 to 20 seconds due to processing the livestream.
You might also like to know that a channel on YouTube posts a video of every drawing online after it happens. That channel is here, and you’ll be able to watch a video of the drawing there later if you miss it when it happens or if the live stream has glitches again.
If you’re interested in watching the drawing on TV, the drawing is broadcast on different networks, based on the individual network’s decision. Different stations like ABC, CBS, and FOX are broadcasting the drawing, but it varies from region to region. For the latest details on where it’s airing on TV, visit Heavy’s story here.
