The Mega Millions jackpot rose to $115 million Wednesday, after no winning matches were recorded from the Nov. 5 drawing.

The Mega Millions numbers for Nov. 5 were 02, 11, 42, 64, and 74 with a Gold Mega Ball of 02 and Megaplier of 5. The next drawing is scheduled for Nov. 8 at 11 p.m. EST.

Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is $70 million.

The Mega Millions lottery made changes to its game that began with the Oct. 22 drawing, with lottery officials expecting more winners and larger jackpots as a result. The drawings now consist of five white balls and one gold Mega Ball. Also, a new matrix incorporates an increase in white balls from 56 to 75, but fewer gold balls (15 instead of 46).

Tickets remain at $1 each. The new draw generated two $1 million dollar winners, according to the Mega Millions official web site. 

"We'll have more winners," Gretchen Villarreal, public relations assistant for the Michigan Lottery, told Mlive.com

National lotteries have been making millionaires for decades. Earlier this week, 68-year-old Carlo Mitchell, a retired nuclear medicine technician from Fresno, Ca., won the $213 million Powerball jackpot.
