After Saturday night's Powerball drawing, the jackpot now sits at $613 million.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- There were no big winners in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, sending the jackpot soaring to $613 million.

Even though nobody took the $572 million jackpot home, some of those tickets are far from losers.

For example. there was a $1 million ticket sold right here in New York.

Saturday's numbers were: 23-27-47-18-02 Powerball: 15

The higher $613 million prize, with a cash value of $329 million, will be up for grabs in Monday night's drawing.

The odds of winning happen to be about one in 292.2 million, but the prize money can be all yours if you can match the five numbers drawn and, of course, the Powerball.
