>> be in it to win it. here's your second chance. if you're opening to wake up this morning as an instant millionaire, you'll have to try again this friday. no winning tickets were sold in last night's $344 million mega millions jackpot. kerry sanders is in knightdale, north carolina just outside of raleigh. good morning.

>> reporter: good morning. this is what a winning ticket would look like. the only problem i bought this ticket this morning. as you noted, the lottery rolled over to $400 million. so if you take the right numbers and you win, your lump sum payment after taxes, $216 plus million dollars. or over years it would be 1322 dollars an hour. which is about $20 a minute even while you're sleeping.

>> just go for the lump sum while you're at it. we hope you don't win because we want to see you around for a long time.
