No one matched the five numbers, which would have awarded the winner $1 million. Mega Millions drawings occur Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. EST. Five balls are selected from a group of balls numbered 1 through 75. Then, the Mega Ball is drawn from balls numbered 1 through 15.

The next drawing is April 25.

Meanwhile, Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is worth $150 million, according to the lottery website. The Powerball jackpot increased when no one matched the winning numbers from the April 19 drawing. 

Earlier this month, Mega Millions winner Leopoldo Choi verified his ticket in California from the Mega Millions April 4 drawing. He won $30 million and took the cash option of $16.6 million.

National lotteries have been creating wealthy multi-millionaires for years. In December, two people in California and Georgia hit the $636 Mega Millions and split the jackpot.
