You still have a chance at becoming a multi-millionaire.

No one won Saturday's Powerball jackpot nor Friday's Mega Millions jackpot drawings, jumping the Powerball prize to $730 million and the Mega Millions jackpot to $850 million.

Cesar Mendoza, a clerk at Speedway Express in San Luis Obispo, said he has been seeing more customers buy lottery tickets than in previous months.

"The other day, somebody bought probably $200-worth of (tickets), and the previous day, some guy bought $160-worth of it, so it's been selling a lot," said Mendoza.

The next Mega Millions drawing is set for Tuesday and the Powerball drawing is on Wednesday.
