DES MOINES, Iowa » Two winning tickets will split the estimated $400 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot.

Lottery officials said early Wednesday a ticket purchased in Maryland and another in Florida match all six numbers drawn in Tuesday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers are: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7.

Information about the winners and the specific locations where the lucky tickets were purchased wasn’t immediately available.

The jackpot is the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history, with a lump-sum option of $224 million.

Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize.

Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
