FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Could you be Fairfield County's next millionaire? The jackpot for Friday night's Mega Millions drawing has reached $425 million.

Mega Millions estimates Friday's jackpot will be the fifth-largest in North American history. The odds of winning are 1-in-259 million, according to the Mega Millions website.

If you match all five numbers and the Mega Ball number on a $1 ticket, the cash value of the ticket before taxes would be about $216.4 million.

Fairfield County saw a $1 million prize winner in Tuesday's drawing, but the winner has yet to come forward.

Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 10:59 p.m. and broadcast locally at 11:22 p.m. on Fox CT Channel 61 and WCCT-TV Channel 20.

But do you dare play the lottery on Friday the 13th?

That grain of sand on the beach is now living in Weston, CT.

This is a tax on the innumerate and the poor. I would never buy one.
