The nation's two largest lottery jackpots are creeping up after drawings this week did not yield a winner in the Mega Millions jackpot nor the Powerball jackpot.

No one won the Powerball jackpot drawing on Saturday, and so the jackpot will spike to $440 million for Wednesday night's drawing. The cashout prize is an estimated $278.3 million. 

Wednesday's numbers were 28, 36, 41, 51, 58 and the Powerball was 24. 

The Mega Millions jackpot, meanwhile, did not have a winner on Friday and so Tuesday's jackpot is $306 million. 

Mega Millions and Powerball tickets cost $2 each.

The Powerball is drawn at 10:59 p.m. Eastern Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Mega Millions is drawn at 11 p.m. Eastern Tuesdays and Fridays.
