This weekend turned out to be a very lucky weekend for someone in New York.

The New York Lottery announced that one lucky Powerball ticket sold in New York was a "Big Money" winner.

The winning ticket matched 4 out of 5 numbers and had the Powerball number for Saturday Night's Powerball drawing.

That ticket won $50,000.

Saturday's Powerball winning numbers were 14-24-50-59-64 with Powerball number 4.

No one claimed the grand prize jackpot, which means tonight's Powerball drawing is worth $137 million dollars.
