MILWAUKEE — New year, new (richer by $425 million) you.
It could happen, if you’re lucky (really, really, really lucky).
The New Year’s Day Mega Millions jackpot was the eighth largest in history, after the Dec. 28 drawing named no winners.
The winning numbers Tuesday, Jan. 1 were: 34, 44, 57, 62, 70 — and the gold Mega Ball was 14.
Last Friday’s winning numbers were 9, 10, 25, 37 and 38 and the gold Mega Ball was 21.
Tuesday marked the fifth time the jackpot was drawn on the first day of a new year, and has so far only been won once on that day, in 2008.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands.
