A winning Mega Millions ticket worth nearly $2 million was sold at a San Bruno liquor store, but no one from the Golden State will share in Tuesday's overall jackpot of $414 million.
Instead, cowinners from Florida and Maryland will split the third-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history with a cash value of more than $224 million. The largest jackpot was $656 million, split among winners in three states in 2012.
Lottery officials said the two tickets matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night: 11, 19, 24, 33, 51, plus the Mega Ball of 7.
Eight people in various states matched five numbers correctly and won at least $1 million each.
The ticket sold at Huntington Liquor in San Bruno, missing only the Mega Ball, is worth $1,962,339, according to lottery officials.
Thirty tickets sold in California that matched four numbers and the Mega Ball are worth $3,639 each.
Mega Millions is offered in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The chances of hitting the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 259 million.
To give those odds some perspective, the chances of being murdered are 1 in 18,989, according to DiscovertheOdds.com.
