This weekend proved to be a lucky one for New York residents

The New York State Lottery announced that there were a couple of "Big Money" winning lottery tickets sold over the weekend.

One lucky ticket won $50,000 playing the Powerball. That ticket matched 4 out of 5 numbers and had the Powerball number. The winning Powerball numbers from Saturday night were 01-28-30-34-52 with a Powerball number 06

There was another "Big Money" winner in New York from Friday night's Mega Millions drawing. That winning ticket matched 4 out of 5 numbers and also had the Mega Ball number. That ticket won $10,000. The winning numbers from Friday night's Mega Millions drawing were 15-32-38-47-65 with a Mega Ball of 12

The good news is that there were no Grand Prize winners for either the Powerball or Mega Millions over the weekend. That means that Monday's Powerball jackpot is up to $179 million dollars, while the jackpot for Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing is up to $196 million dollars.

Winning either of those jackpots would put you on the list of the biggest Lottery Jackpots ever won in New York. Here is the current list.
