    Many customers said they were disappointed they didn't win the jackpot.

    "I kind of had some butterflies in my stomach when I was walking over here with my ticket.  Because there was actually a possibility it could be me.  But then I stuck it in the machine and it says sorry not a winner," said Marvin Mendez, a regular customer of the Pacific Beach 7-Eleven.

    The owner of the 7-Eleven could stand to win a bonus of more than $230,000 according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

    The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions Web site.
      
    California Lottery officials said the winner should sign the ticket, put it in a safe place, and contact a Lottery office.

    Two tickets -- one each sold in Georgia and Michigan -- had five numbers, but didn't have the Mega number and are each worth $250,000.

    The drawing was the sixth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold. A ticket sold in Ohio for the Dec. 12 draw had all six numbers and was worth $207 million.

    Besides California, the Mega Millions game is played in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
