(CBS13/CNN) — Mega Millions’ estimated $750 million jackpot for Friday’s drawing will be its second-largest ever.
No ticket matched all numbers in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing. Wednesday’s Powerball drawing also failed to have any ticket matching all six numbers, pushing that jackpot to an estimated $640 million.

Although no one took home the big prize, the Powerball drawing was still fruitful for some. Powerball announced a $2 million winning ticket, which matched five numbers and used a power play multiplier, was sold in Virginia.
Ten $1 million tickets were won throughout California, Colorado, Georgia, Michigan, New York and Texas.READ MORE: City To Vote On Project That Would Add Speed Bumps To More Sacramento Neighborhoods
