(LEX 18)– Tonight’s drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot will be the fifth time that the Mega Millions has been drawn on New Year’s Day.

The Mega Millions Jackpot is at the 8th highest in the game’s history. It is a $425 million.

“There’s always a chance. You can lose two ways. You can lose if you play. You can lose if you don’t play, so if you play every now and then and lose, that’s not too bad,” said lottery player Louis Petit.

2018 was a big year for Mega Millions, with a record $1.5 billion ticket sold in October. The person who bought that ticket in South Carolina has still not come forward.
