It was a good weekend to be a Powerball player in New York.

While no one claimed the grand prize from Saturday Night's Powerball drawing the New York State Lottery announced that there were two "Big Money" winning tickets sold in the "Empire State".

Each one of those tickets matched four out of five numbers and also matched the Powerball number from Saturday's drawing. Each one of those tickets won the 3rd place prize of $50,000.

Saturday's winning Powerball numbers were: 3-8-40-53-58 with a Powerball of 03.

The holders of those tickets beat some impressive odds as the odds of winning the 3rd place prize with Powerball are 1 in 913,129.

Since no one claimed the grand prize jackpot on Saturday, tonight's jackpot for the Powerball is up to $391 million dollars. The odds of winning the grand prize Powerball jackpot are 1 in 292,201,338.

If you want a slight edge when it comes to winning the Powerball, you might want to play these numbers. Here is a look at the most commonly drawn Powerball numbers since 2012.
