2 tickets win $400 million Mega Millions jackpot

DES MOINES, Iowa — 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 jackpot is the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history, with a lump-sum option of $224 million.
The winning numbers are: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7.
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.
