This weekend was another lucky weekend for lottery players in New York State.

According to the New York State Lottery, there were several "Big Money" winners from the Mega Millions and Powerball drawings this weekend.

Friday night's Mega Millions drawing led to two "Big Money" $10,000 winners. Two tickets sold matched four out of five numbers and had the Mega Ball. Friday Night's Winning Mega Millions numbers were: 13-33-59-68-70 Mega Ball 08

Saturday's Powerball drawing led to another round of "Big Money" winners. Two tickets sold in New York matched 4 out of 5 numbers and had the Powerball correct, which means that those tickets each won $50,000. Saturday Night's Winning Powerball numbers were: 1-12-14-24-57 Powerball 07

If you were one of the lucky winners from the weekend, you have one calendar year to claim your prize with the New York Lottery. There were no grand prize-winning tickets with either the Mega Millions or the Powerball. Tonight's Powerball jackpot is now up to $235 million dollars. Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $245 million dollars.
