Thousands of New Yorkers were hoping to instantly become a multi-millionaire by playing the Powerball on Saturday Night.

After the numbers were drawn, there were several "Big Money" winners in New York from Saturday Night's Powerball drawing.


No one claimed the grand prize jackpot, but according to the New York Lottery, there were three "Big Money" 3rd-place winning tickets sold in the state.

All three of the tickets matched four out of five numbers and also had the Powerball number. Each one of those tickets won $50,000.

Saturday's Powerball numbers were: 6-23-25-34-51 with a Powerball number of 03

Since no one claimed the grand prize, the Powerball jackpot for Monday's drawing is now up to $800 million dollars.

That would almost double the current record for the largest Lottery jackpot ever won in New York State. The record was set last April.
