New Year's Day Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $415 million


Other than the jackpot, prizes can range from $2 to $5 million depending on the type of ticket.

The last huge Mega Millions jackpot - the 1.6 billion dollars in October was won by someone in SC, but has not yet been claimed.

No one won the jackpot in a Mega Millions lottery drawing Friday night.

This is the fifth time there's been a Mega Millions drawing on New Year's Day, but there's only been one New Year's victor.
