This weekend continued to be a lucky weekend for lottery players in New York.

Just one day after the New York State Lottery announced that one ticket sold for the Mega Millions drawing on Friday that won $1 million dollars, there was another "Big Money" winning ticket sold in New York for Saturday's Powerball drawing.


The winning ticket for Saturday Night's Powerball drawing matched four out of five numbers and had the Powerball as well. That ticket won the 3rd place prize of $50,000.

The winning Powerball numbers from Saturday were 28-35-41-47-60 with a Powerball number of 03.

No one claimed the grand prize from Saturday's Powerball so that means the Jackpot for Monday Night's drawing is now up to $412 million dollars.

If you were to win that jackpot, you would instantly be in the Top 5 of the largest lottery jackpots ever won in New York State.

Here are the current Top 5 largest lottery jackpots ever won by a New York State resident.
