Christmas came early for two people after waking up Wednesday as mega-millionaires!
It was the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in the history of the game.
The first was set back in 2012 after it reached $656 million.
Here in Shreveport/Bossier City, people raced to buy what would hopefully become the winning ticket.
After the drawing (winning numbers: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39 with Mega Ball 7), at least two winners have been named, one out of California, the other out of Georgia.
There were 259 million number combinations with this game.
Expected payout if the lump sum is chosen, would be just over $340 million.
Officials say if there was no winner after Tuesday night's drawing, the jackpot would roll over to another drawing on Friday.
They believed the jackpot would have grown to about $1 billion.
