New year, new (richer by $425 million) you.
It could happen, if you’re lucky enough to have the winning numbers in your hand. The New Year’s Day numbers drawn Tuesday night are 34, 44, 57, 62, 70 and a gold Mega Ball of 14.
Another year, another lottery you didn’t win. Unless you are one lucky New Yorker.
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 winner.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands.
Unsure of what to do with the extra cash?
No matter the purchases, life is going to be very different for the winner.
