There is one jackpot victor in the New Year's Day Mega Millions drawing, according to lottery officials.

A record-breaking $1.537 billion Mega Millions prize was sold in SC previous year, but the ticket buyer has not yet come forward.

It matched all five white balls drawn, 34-44-57-62-70, but not the yellow Mega Ball 14. There was one Match 5 ticket with the Megaplier worth $4 million, sold in Pennsylvania.

If you're looking for a great way to start 2019, this is it: $415 million is up for grabs in a New Year's Day Mega Millions lottery drawing. The whopping sum is the game's eighth-largest jackpot.

Seven other players won at least $1 million after matching all the numbers except the Mega Ball.
