Mega Millions Information Revealed…Sort Of
As America comes to grips with NOT being the big Mega Millions winner, a small South Carolina town is buzzing
While the Mega Millions jackpot winner may never be revealed, folks in the town where is was purchased are saying they know who the winner is – and they’re not telling. Officials have confirmed that the winning ticket was purchased the KC Mart in Simpsonville, South Carolina – a suburb of Greenville.
Fortunately for the winner, South Carolina is one of eight states where the law allows for lottery winners to remain anonymous…and considering the cash at play, that’s a very good thing. The winner has 180 days to claim the prize. What lottery officials still won’t say? Whether the buyer used "quick pick" numbers or selected their own.
As for locals, they’re just happy for their neighbor. "We are such a warm community, if someone needs something, we are there," says Mayor Janice Curtis. "If someone needs celebrating, and this is certainly an occasion to celebrate, we are there."
- Meanwhile…there was no big winner in last night’s Powerball drawing. That means Saturday's jackpot is expected to tally $750-million. That should put it among the top four jackpots in US lottery history.
- This week's one-point-five billion-dollar Mega Millions jackpot is the largest in world history. This Saturday's drawing will be the second largest Powerball jackpot ever. It's largest? The 2016 jackpot which rose to $1.58-billion in 2016.
Just a little happy respite for your Thursday.
