SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — The lucky person who won a massive Mega Millions jackpot of more than $1.5 billion still hasn’t claimed their prize.
The winning ticket was purchased at a KC Mart in Simpsonville on Oct. 23.
But almost two months later, and the winner has yet to come forward. Lottery officials have said the person has 180 days to claim the prize.
If the winner doesn’t come forward, the Upstate store that sold the ticket won’t receive $50,000 and the Palmetto State will lose out on $60 million in unrestricted tax revenue.
Lottery officials say all states that participate in Mega Millions will split the money if the ticket isn’t claimed by mid-April.
