Mega Millions jackpot rises to $415 million

The New Year’s Day Mega Millions jackpot is the eighth largest in history after the December 28 drawing named no winners

One winning ticket for Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot worth $425 million was sold in NY, lottery officials announced Wednesday morning.

This is the fifth time the jackpot has been drawn on the first day of a new year, but only one other - in 2008 - has had a victor.

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

The Mega Millions ticket was one of two winning the third-tier prize in the December 28 drawing. This is 8th-largest jackpot in the game's history.

A winning Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions ticket worth $4 million was sold at an Erie County store for Tuesday's drawing. The prize has not yet been claimed.

Rhona McIver said Sarah's mother and sister have driven to B.C.to pick her up. He has also not been allowed to apply for bail or see a lawyer.

The winning ticket was sold at a minimart BP gas station in Glen Head, New York.

It matched all five white balls drawn, 34-44-57-62-70, but not the yellow Mega Ball 14. That victor still hasn't come forward.

How about starting 2019 with an infusion of $425 million?

Lottery officials say the cash option for the jackpot is $254.6 million.
