Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing was very lucky for some lottery players in New York State.

While no one took home the grand prize, the New York Lottery announced that there were three "Big Money" winning 3rd place tickets sold in New York.

Each one of those tickets matched four out of five numbers and also had the Mega Ball. Each ticket won $10,000.


Tuesday's Mega Millions numbers were: 2-49-50-61-70 with a Mega Ball Of 14

The grand prize for Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $687 million dollars. That jackpot would be the largest ever won by a New York resident.
