#megamillions Florida and Maryland winners split Mega Millions jackpot

March 19th, 2014

RELEASE DATE: 3/19/2014

It has been rolling since January 3, but Mega Millions found a jackpot winner on Tuesday night – two, in fact, as winning tickets were sold in Florida and Maryland. Strong sales pushed the final jackpot amount to $414 million, which will be split by the two winners. The tickets matched all six numbers (11, 19, 24, 33 and 51, plus the Mega Ball of 7). The jackpot is the third largest in Mega Millions history.

The two winning jackpot states bookend Mega Millions history. Florida is the newest member of the Mega Millions group, having joined the game last May, and this is the state's first jackpot winner. In contrast, Maryland is one of the game's founding members, and previous jackpot wins in that state include a one-third share of the largest Mega Millions jackpot in history, $656 million.

In addition to the two jackpot winners, the March 18 draw included eight $1 million Match 5 winners.
