$1.5B Mega Millions victor has not claimed prize, report says

Mega Millions Winning Numbers 13 November 2018

A jackpot worth over $1.6 billion (Ksh.160 billion) still remains unclaimed three weeks after the draw.

The winning numbers for the October 23 drawing were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70, and Mega Ball 5.

Lottery officials confirmed that a ticket purchased at a convenience store in Simpsonville, South Carolina, matched all six numbers in the October 23 drawing. It was the largest USA jackpot won by a single ticket and the nation's second-largest jackpot ever.

SC only grants the victor 180 days from the time the ticket was purchased to collect their earnings.

If the victor misses the deadline, "each participating state in the Mega Millions game will get back all the money that state contributed to the unclaimed jackpot", the Mega Millions website notes, adding "each state uses its unclaimed lottery prizes for different purposes".

There is a 180-day deadline - until April 21 - to cash in the ticket.


If the jackpot isn't claimed, each participating state will get back the money they contributed to the jackpot. Officials say the winning ticket was sold in SC.

The store that sold the winning ticket, KC Mart in Simpsonville, SC, will receive $50,000, according to ABC News.

The victor would only become an actual billionaire by taking the prize in annual installments over three decades and hanging on to the bulk of the money.

The lottery, however, does not know if the victor took that advice or why no one has spoken up.

The victor does still have plenty of time to come forward.

Tony Cooper, the chief operating officer of the South Carolina Education Lottery, told ABC News that the victor should sign the back of the lottery ticket, store it in a safe place, and seek financial advice.
