Two lucky winners from Florida and Maryland will get to split the $400 million Mega Millions jackpot after matching all five numbers and the gold mega ball Wednesday night.
The winning numbers for Wednesday night's drawing were: 11-19-24-33-51, Gold Mega Ball 07.
A winning ticket was sold in Brevard County, Fla., at a Sonoco gas station, Florida Lottery officials said Wednesday. The gas station is set to receive a pretty nice cash reward just for selling the winning slip of paper.
Lottery officials said on Twitter that eight people in six different states matched enough numbers to win $1 million prizes.
