Could The $1.6 Billion Lottery Winner Appear On My Lottery Dream Home?

With Mega Millions claimed Powerball still stands at $620 million ahead of Wednesday’s drawing

A man buys tickets for Tuesday's Mega Millions lottery drawing after the jackpot exceeded $1.6 billion in New York City, New York, October 23, 2018. But for a Mega Millions ticket holder, it's also a lucky store for them. Two of those winners - in Florida and Texas - added the Megaplier option to their ticket, and Tuesday's 3X Megaplier number tripled their prizes to $3 million. It is unclear how much prize money the near-winning tickets will earn.

After selling a $1.5 billion winning lottery ticket, SC convenience store owner CJ Patel says he plans to share part of the business' $50,000 bonus with his employees. One of his tickets matched the first five numbers, only missing the sixth and final Mega Ball number.

Mega Millions confirmed there was one victor for the whopping $US1.6 billion ($NZ2.45b) prize.

A flimsy little piece of paper that crossed the counter of a convenience store on a country road in Simpsonville, South Carolina, is now worth $1.537 billion, and they apparently don't know the victor. She was worth $1.8 billion from the chemical, real estate and manufacturing conglomerate, the magazine reported.

States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and then use the money to support public schools or meet other needs.

The name of South Carolina's last big victor - a $399 million Powerball jackpot in September 2013 which at the time was the fourth biggest lottery prize in USA history - has never been made public.

The victor can take $913 million in a lump sum cash payment or the whole pile in annuities over 29 years. SC is one of eight states where lottery winners can keep their anonymity.

The pair, who have been together for six years, said "I do" in front of fewer than 80 guests, reports People . The couple had a small, Jewish ceremony of about 80 guests in upstate NY .

"The moment we've been waiting for finally arrived, and we couldn't be more excited", said Gordon Medenica, lead director of Mega Millions Group.

The victor has 180 days to claim the prize, Armstrong said.

CJ Patel is the owner of KC Mart No. 7 in Simpsonville. She bought her million-dollar ticket at the Cumberland Farms store on Main Street in Bridgewater, said Christian Teja, spokesman for the Massachusetts State Lottery.

Call it the world's largest lottery prize that wasn't.

Powerball's current estimated $620 million prize refers to the annuity option paid over 29 years.
