  • Mega Millions jackpot reaches $425 million

A lucky Mega Millions ticket holder in NY won the jackpot on the first day of the new year. The New Year's Day Mega Millions jackpot has reached $415 million.

There have been 19 consecutive drawings since October 26, 2018, without a jackpot victor.

When nobody won the Mega Millions jackpot last Friday, it presented a rare opportunity for someone to win $437 million on the first day of 2019. The whopping sum is the game's eighth-largest jackpot. The prize has not yet been claimed.

The winning numbers were 34,44, 57, 62, 70 with Mega Ball 14 and a 4x Megaplier.

A winning ticket was purchased in Long Island, New York.

The Mega Millions numbers will be drawn Tuesday night, January 1, at 11:00 p.m.

The $425 million jackpot is worth about $254 million if the victor chooses the cash option, lottery officials said. They have until April to come forward. A victor has claimed the jackpot on New Year's Day only once before, in 2008.

The ticket was sold at the GetGo at 6400 Peach St.
