Why would you wait so long to get that huge chunk of dough? I would have bought a country by now. The mystery of who bought the $1.5 billion dollar winning ticket in the Mega Millions drawing from back in October is over, sort of. The winner from South Carolina wants to stay anonymous. Can you imagine the long lost relatives begging you for a spare million or two if you didn't?
They made it just under the wire. If they hadn't come forward to claim the prize by April 19th, they would have lost it! The person submitting the claim for what was the second-largest lottery in U.S. history has chosen the cash option, a one-time payment of nearly $878,000,000. That’s the largest jackpot payout to a single winner in United States history! And i get excited if I win $5 on a scratch ticket.
