TRENTON (Dec. 31, 2018) – The estimated Mega Millions game jackpot has been increased to $425 million for tomorrow night’s drawing, the first Mega Millions drawing of 2019. The cash value is now $254.6 million. This jackpot increase is a result of robust sales nationwide.
The chance is here to become one of 2019’s newest multi-millionaires for someone lucky enough to hold the winning ticket for tomorrow night’s big Mega Millions jackpot. Lottery players across New Jersey are rushing to retailer locations to make their purchase of a ticket that could lead to “good fortune” in the new year.
The next drawing will be held Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019 at 11:00 pm. Players are urged to buy their ticket early and avoid what are sure to be long lines at lottery retailer locations as the drawing time gets closer. All New Jersey Lottery Mega Millions tickets must be purchased before 10:45 pm prior to the 11:00 pm drawing. Mega Millions tickets cost just two dollars; by adding the Megaplier option for an extra dollar per play, players can increase their non-jackpot winnings up to five times.
