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.

We played Friday and yesterday-hit the Mega ball both times. I don't care what anybody says, even winning a buck counts for something in our book!

Congrats to winners but increasing the jackpot is ridiculous. The winning pot is way too big. Instead, I'd rather see higher pots in the secondary categories since the odds are astronomical to begin with. There must be huge amounts of people discouraged from playing because its virtually impossible to win in the first place. My office group has been dabbling in the Mega pots for years with nothing more than $1 winnings, and we usually don't play unless the pot is huge because we're a large group. We've lost a lot of discouraged participants along the way.
