MERRITT ISLAND, Fla. (AP) — The holders of two lucky tickets sold states apart will split a $414 million Mega Millions jackpot, the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
Numbers were drawn Tuesday, and lottery officials said Wednesday that winning tickets were sold in Florida and Maryland.
Mega Millions says strong sales pushed the jackpot past the $400 million mark.
Florida's ticket was purchased at a Sunoco convenience store in Merritt Island on the Space Coast. News vans lingered there Wednesday. Some neighbors were taken aback by the activity but say they're glad the winner may be a local.
The Florida winner has 180 days to come forward. A name and city of residence will be released.
Maryland's ticket was sold at Lady's Liquor in La Plata, south of Washington. The winner has 182 days to claim the prize and can remain anonymous.
