[CentOS] /etc/aliases file wildcard

I have been trying to find out if the /etc/aliases file
can accept wildcards in the user name

I was hoping that a line like or similiar:

machine*: myaccount

would take any name matching machine* and forward onto the myaccount 
mailbox.

man aliases didnt really help me nor did I find anything else.
Is there a way to pattern match in /etc/aliases with an * or something?

Thanks,

Jerry
