The numbers in the Tuesday evening multi-state Mega Millions draw were 17, 18, 24, 35, 39 and the Mega number was 18.
The estimated jackpot was $40 million. If no tickets were sold with all six numbers, the jackpot for the next drawing, scheduled for Friday, will rise to $52 million, a California Lottery official said.
The drawing was the fourth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number was 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website.
The Mega Millions game was played in 41 states and the District of Columbia.
