$1.5 Billion Mega Millions Winner Finally Comes Forward

An anonymous lottery player from South Carolina has stepped forward with the record-breaking $1.5 billion winning Mega Millions ticket. They opted to collect a once-off lump sum payment of $877 million.


The news broke when the South Carolina lottery commission made a statement saying that the winner had come forward to collect the prize. This comes five months after the draw took place and broke the record for the largest single payment for any lottery game in the U.S.

The winner had until 14th April to claim the prize before the jackpot would be forfeited. The winner has decided to stay anonymous and no further personal details about them have been released to the public.

The winner has chosen the services of the "Lottery Lawyer" Jason M. Kurland, a New York lawyer famous for representing other high profile lottery winners. He will be speaking on behalf of the winner to all news outlets.

Because the winner is from South Carolina they are allowed to stay anonymous, but most other states require that the winner come forward and attend a news conference.

The winning ticket cost only $2 and sold from a small convenience store. The owner of the store will receive a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
