Although no one won the big Mega Millions jackpot, four New Yorkers still have a million reasons to celebrate.
Four tickets matching five numbers -- but not the Mega Ball -- each won a $1 million prize.
They were sold in the Bronx, Yonkers, Middletown and Niagara Falls. All were Quick Pick tickets.
The tickets were sold at:
- Jardy Wines Liquors, 486 E. 169th St., the Bronx
- Shoprite/Wakefern, 278 Tuckahoe Road, Yonkers
- Chestnut Mart, 176 West Main Street, Middletown,
- Tops Markets, 4235 Military Road, Niagara Falls
The winning numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.
Because no one won the big jackpot, it swelled to $1.6 billion.
It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren't good. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.
Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot grew to $470 million. The winning numbers drawn Saturday night were 16-54-57-62-69, Powerball: 23, Power Play: 2.
