  • South Carolina adds 2nd billionaire with huge jackpot ticket

Of the remaining four tickets that matched four of the five first numbers and the Megaball: one $10,000 victor was sold in Kootenai County, in Twin Falls County, and in Ada County.

The six winning numbers were printed on a ticket sold at the store off Lee Vaughn Road, about a 6.5km drive from city hall.

Rosa's winning ticket was sold at KJ's Superstore in Kuna.

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.

She purchased her winning Quic Pic ticket, which matched the first five numbers drawn, at a Cumberland Farms in Bridgewater, the release said.

"I stopped to get some Mega Millions tickets because the jackpot is so high", said Jordan, a mother of four, in a news release. "We're so happy for the victor, and we know the South Carolina Education Lottery can't wait to meet the lucky ticket holder".

The record jackpot had set off a lottery frenzy across America, with people lining up at convenience stores, supermarkets and liquor stores to buy a two dollar ticket that gave them a roughly one in 300 million chance of winning.


"Does it make a difference to somebody this morning that when they thought they were going to win $1.6 billion and they only won $1.537 billion?" he asked.

Lottery officials have not announced the identities of a victor or winners.

Sales reached almost $740 million during that time, lottery officials said.

KC Mart owner CJ Patel will also be a victor.

The other winning ticket in MA has not yet been claimed. The victor also has up to 180 days to claim the prize. It reflects a trend toward ever-growing lottery prizes due to changes that worsened the odds with hopes of bigger jackpots and better sales.

Powerball's current estimated $620 million prize refers to the annuity option paid over 29 years. A single lucky ticket holder in SC can claim the jackpot.

Jerry and Jo Mears of Eden, North Carolina, said they like to relax at their place at Smith Mountain Lake and while on a recent trip there, Jerry chose to buy some Mega Millions tickets! One was sold in Mount Pleasant and the other in Grandville.
