UPDATE: Two Tickets Winning Mega Millions Tickets Sold

Three Mega Millions lottery tickets sold in North Carolina are worth $250,000, but the true winning tickets were sold in Idaho and Washington state. The two ticket-holders will split the $355 million dollar jackpot.

The prize is the fourth-largest in U.S. history.

The winning numbers are 15, 47, 04, 25, 08 and the mega ball is 42.

Prizes in the amounts of $250,000 will be handed out to 67 people for matching five numbers but not the Mega Ball. 323 people win $10,000 for matching four numbers plus the Mega Ball.

In Jacksonville Tuesday customers flooded the Han-Dee Hugo's to buy tickets. Some claim the store is lucky because it has has some lottery winners in the past, including a $200,000 winner.
