Mega Millions' New Year's Day jackpot up to $415 million

Mega Millions jackpot reaches $425 million

Mega Millions says this will be the eighth largest jackpot in its history.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot on record was tapped in October 2018 when one winning ticket was sold in SC for a $1.537 billion jackpot.

In a potentially lucrative start to the year for America's lottery players, the Mega Millions jackpot climbed to $415 million in a drawing set to take place on New Year's Day Tuesday.

I don't think many people would mind starting off the New Year as a multi-millionaire.

The House Democratic plan includes full funding for the remaining federal departments that weren't funded before the shutdown. A stop sign is seen near the White House during a government shutdown in Washington, DC on December 27, 2018.

The next drawing will be held, January 1 at 11 p.m. If the money isn't claimed by late April, the money will return to the 44 states that hold Mega Millions lotteries. It costs $2 to play the game - without the Megaplier option - and the sales cutoff time in Texas is 9:45 p.m.

If one person wins the jackpot and takes the cash option, they'd go home with almost a quarter-billion dollars.

In fact, the odds are 1 in over 302 million.
