Numbers have been drawn for a lottery jackpot that would be the ninth-largest lottery in USA history.

The $548 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

The jackpot was last won July 24 when a group of California office workers won $543 million.

The Tuesday drawing marked the 22nd consecutive one where nobody matched all six numbers drawn, according to the lottery website.

To commemorate the more than half-billion dollar prize, Illinois Lottery representatives gave out 548 free tickets - one ticket per million dollars in the jackpot - to visitors at Marquette Newsstand, 140 S. Dearborn St.in the Loop, from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. Friday. Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets.

For example, matching five white balls without the Mega Ball pays $1 million. The most recent Mega Ball was 18 on Tuesday night.

There were no winners in Saturday night's Powerball drawing, so the next drawing, scheduled for Wednesday, will be worth an estimated $345 million, Powerball officials said.

Mega Millions appears to be the big draw lately. The next drawing at 11 p.m. EDT Friday will offer the ninth-largest jackpot in USA history. The payout was $309.2 million as the cash option. The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1.
