2 winning tickets in $400M Mega Millions jackpot

Two Winning Tickets Sold In $400M Mega Millions Jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- If you purchased a Mega Millions lottery ticket in Florida or Maryland, check your numbers - you may be splitting a $400 million jackpot.

Lottery officials say two tickets purchased in those states matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night.

The winning numbers are: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7.

The jackpot is the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history, with a lump-sum option of $224 million.

Florida lottery officials say their winning ticket was sold at a Sunoco convenience store in Merritt Island. Information about the Maryland ticket wasn't immediately available.

Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots. The game is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Would it make more sense to lower the odds of winning in order to make 400 millionaires instead of having one or two multimillionaires? As Arnold Schwartzenegger (sp?) once said, "Having more money does not make you happier. I have $50 million but I was just as happy when I had $48 million."

Can't win if you don't play that is guarantee...shame that the lotto winners can't get the 14% tax bracket the hedge fund betters get ... Lastly there are smaller winners every drawing but can't debate someone should be conducting oversight of the funds taken in and spent including who's brother uncle cousin is getting the sweetheart contract at over inflated cost. Oh my a function someone in govt can/should do?
