What a way to ring in the new year!
The multi-state Mega Millions lottery game is sporting a giant jackpot for New Year's Eve, after yesterday evening's $200 million drawing went without a top winner.
Friday evening's jackpot is now pegged at $237 million, after 14 straight bi-weekly drawings without a top winner.
But 17 players in a dozen states won at least $250,000 each by matching 5 of the 6 winning numbers.
Mega Millons is played in 41 states and the District of Columbia.
The winning numbers drawn Tuesday evening were: 6, 18, 36, 40 and 49. The Mega Ball was 7.
