New Year's Day Mega Millions drawing has many dreaming big

Tuesday night's drawing is up to $425 million.

You could be starting 2019 off in an entirely new financial situation. The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $425 million after no jackpot winning tickets were sold for Friday night's drawing.

If one person wins the jackpot and takes the cash option, they'd go home with nearly $250 million.

Across the country, lots of people are lining up and dreaming about what could be.

The jackpot has been rolling over since October when one ticket worth more than $1.5 billion was sold in South Carolina. That ticket still has not been claimed.

You still have time to get in on the Mega millions action. The drawing is Tuesday night at 9 p.m. Mountain Time.

Although no jackpot winning tickets were sold in Friday's drawing, five Match 5 winning tickets were sold in California, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The tickets are each worth $1 million. One Match 5 + Megaplier ticket was sold in Washington, worth $2 million.
