One person who bought a Mega Millions ticket in Connecticut for the New Year’s Eve drawing Friday night is starting the new year with an extra $30,000.
One ticket sold in the state had four numbers and the Mega Ball as well as the Megaplier.
A regular ticket that has four numbers and the Mega Ball would win $10,000, but the Megaplier boosts it to a $30,000 winner.
The winning numbers were 2-5-30-46-61 and the Mega Ball was 8.
There were 11,621 winning tickets sold in Connecticut and the prizes range from $2 to $30,000.
The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Tuesday night and the jackpot is estimated at $244 million.
