Anonymous victor claims 1.5 billion U.S. dollars Mega Millions jackpot

FINALLY SC winner claims $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot allowed person in front of them at the store

The lottery commission's statement gave no clue as to why the victor took his or her time to come forward.

When the victor never showed, some thought the ticket may have been lost.

The unnamed person who bought that ticket reportedly let another customer ahead in line to buy a Mega Millions ticket.

"South Carolina is one of eight states - along with Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas - where winners can opt to keep their identity a secret", reports New York Post.

The victorious player has opted not to be publicly identified, with lottery officials describing the victor only as a "South Carolinian".

The sole victor, who wishes to remain anonymous, submitted a claim for the prize today, according to SC lottery officials.

He'll spend the money on renovations he's already made to that store and to other convenience stores he owns.

"It's already spent", said Patel, adding that he has spent the windfall on bills.

Inside Edition went to Simpsonville, South Carolina, where the ticket was purchased, to ask around about the mysterious victor.

Some theorized that the victor was on the run from police and feared a background check if he or she won. Others speculated that the winning ticket had been purchased by an office pool and was now the subject of litigation.

If the prize had gone unclaimed by the April 19 deadline, the $1.5 billion would have been redistributed to the 44 states - along with D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands - that take part in the Mega Millions. "We couldn't be happier for them and are thrilled they took the time to assemble the right team before coming in to claim".

Radler earned the nickname "The Lottery Lawyer" by representing winners of some of the largest lottery jackpots in the country including winners in lotteries of $254.2 million, $336.4 million, and $121.6 million. And that could get passed along to taxpayers if a proposal goes through to give a $50 rebate to each person who files income taxes. "Obviously, South Carolina will reap the benefits of that", state House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Murrell Smith said, according to the newspaper.
