The holders of the tickets — sold in Florida and Maryland — will split the huge prize, Mega Millions said in a tweet.

The jackpot is the third largest in U.S. lottery history.

There also are eight $1 million prize winners, according to Mega Millions - two each from Florida and New York and one each from California, Illinois, Maryland and Texas, the lottery organization reported.

The million-dollar Texas ticket was sold at a QuikTrip convenience store at 220 West Centerville Road in Garland.

The winning numbers are:11, 19, 24, 33, 51 and Mega Ball 7, according to Mega Millions.

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

The jackpot for the next drawing on Friday is estimated at $15 million.
