Illinois Lottery officials said a ticket sold in Chicago will take a portion of Tuesday night's $636 million jackpot.

A quick pick ticket sold at Tai Nam Market, at 4925 N. Broadway St., in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, matched all five numbers but missed the Mega Ball. The retailer will receive a $10,000 bonus, one percent of the prize amount.

The numbers drawn were: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39. The Mega Ball was 7.

Lottery officials said two tickets -- one in California and another in Georgia -- matched all the drawn numbers and will share the nation's second-largest lottery prize in United States history.

The jackpot started its ascent on Oct. 4. Twenty-two draws came and went without a winner, Otto said. She also said a billion worth of tickets were sold during the run, earning the places that offer Powerball -- 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands -- a total of $300 million.

Nearly two dozen $1 million tickets were sold in 15 states, officials said.

The jackpot resets to $15 million for the next drawing, which is on Friday night.
