The tickets — one sold at a Sunoco convenience store on Florida's Space Coast, the other at a Maryland liquor store southeast of Washington — matched all six winning numbers in the Tuesday night drawing: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7. The full $414 million jackpot has a cash option of $230.9 million. The Florida winner has 180 days to claim the prize at state lottery headquarters in Tallahassee, and his or her name and city of residence will be released.
