NEW YORK (WABC) -- If you didn't wake up a millionaire after the Powerball drawing Saturday night, you still have another chance.

Powerball players in New York, California, and Florida were able to win $1 million prizes.

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over since the July 19 drawing when a ticket in California won a prize worth $1.08 billion, the third-largest Powerball jackpot ever won. There have been over 25 consecutive drawings since then.
