The Mega Millions lottery jackpot on New Year’s Day will be one of the Top 10 biggest jackpots on record.
After no tickets matched all six balls in Friday night’s $370 million drawing, the Mega Millions jackpot is shooting up to an estimated $415 million on Tuesday, on the night of New Year’s Day 2019.
Despite the lack of a grand-prize winner on Friday night, a few lucky lottery players — including one in New Jersey — won $1 million by matching the five regular balls but not the Mega ball, according to the official Mega Millions website. The winning Mega Millions numbers Friday night, Dec. 28, were: 9, 10, 25, 37 and 38, and the winning Mega Ball number was 21. The Megaplier was 2.
