Someone in Ohio started off the new year a whole lot richer.

One $1 million ticket was sold in Ohio, three in New York, one in South Carolina and another one in Texas.

One ticket sold in New York matched all six numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing worth an estimated $425 million.

The winning numbers were 34,44, 57, 62, 70 with Mega Ball 14 and a 4x Megaplier.

This is the fifth time the jackpot has been drawn on the first day of a new year, but only one other -- in 2008 -- has had a winner, according to CNN.

Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the US Virgin Islands. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302 million.
