Mega Millions New Year’s déjà vu?
As a recap, no one hit the winning numbers which were 1 – 31 – 35 – 48 – 62 with a gold Mega Ball of 19 for the final 2020 Mega Millions drawing last Tuesday. In fact, there weren’t even any second place winners that matched all five white balls.
However, two years ago, a similarly-sized jackpot was won on New Year’s Day in 2019. A winning ticket out of New York managed to scoop a massive jackpot of $437 million.
Will tonight’s drawing ring in the New Year for some lucky individual?
