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

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.

Mega Millions drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays and are offered in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

On Wednesday, the Powerball drawing will be at $53 million. The cost of a ticket is $2.
