ATLANTA (AP) - The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing grew to $70 million Wednesday.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $56 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were four second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing, matching all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 each. Also, 32 tickets matched 4 of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 2, 7, 23, 38 and 40. The Mega Ball number was 40.
