Powerball Jackpot causing problems for Iowa Lottery

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -

This is the first time that a jackpot has topped the $1 billion dollar mark, and it is causing some minor complications for the Iowa Lottery. 

Right now the lottery has lighted signs in many places that display both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpot amounts. 

These signs are only supposed to show amounts in the millions of dollars, so right now the amount displayed at stores is $999 million, even though the Powerball jackpot is more than that. 

Like these lighted signs, the billboards are also designed to only display amounts in the millions of dollars. They will also display a Powerball jackpot amount of $999 million until the jackpot is won.
