Miami (CBSMiami/AP) — One of two Mega Millions tickets which matched all six numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing was sold in Florida.
Florida Lottery officials said it was sold at a Sunoco convenience store in Merritt Island. The other winning ticket was sold in Charles County, Maryland.
The winners will split the $400 million jackpot. The jackpot is the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history, with a lump-sum option of $224 million.
The winning numbers were: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7.
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.
