One winning ticket for Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot worth $425 million was sold in NY, lottery officials announced Wednesday morning.

The lucky victor in NY can choose a cash option of $254.6 million. The whopping sum is the game's eighth-largest jackpot. A single ticket in Pennsylvania was worth $4 million for matching the five white balls and playing the Megaplier option, while the other six were each worth $1 million.

Bama vs OU; Clemson vs Notre Dame
Alabama beat the Tigers 45-40 in Arizona for the 2015 title after the two teams combined for a 40-point fourth quarter. This matchup has seemed inevitable since the Tide and Tigers started the season ranked 1-2.

The winning numbers were: 34-44-57-62-70 with a Mega Ball of 14.

Mega Millions, however, also dolls out prizes up to $5 million, depending on the type of ticket a player buys, according to a lottery news release. That victor still hasn't come forward.

If one person wins the jackpot and takes the cash option, they'd go home with almost a quarter-billion dollars. The last time was in Texas in 2008.
