Never has the sixth-largest lottery jackpot in USA history seemed so small.

While the big winning ticket for the $1.5 billion Mega Millions lottery was sold in South Carolina, Minnesota didn't go empty-handed.

SC allows lottery winners to remain anonymous, and so far no one has come forward to claim the jackpot.

The jackpot is $1.6 billion - with a one-time cash option of $913 million.

South Carolina's lottery director says they hope to reveal the identity of the store that sold the winning ticket by mid-day Wednesday. But it shattered the previous Mega Millions record jackpot of $656 million, which was shared by winners in Maryland, Kansas and IL in March 2012.

For the victor, options include an immediate cash payment of $877.8 million, or the $1.537 billion prize paid out over 29 years.

The ticket sold Tuesday is worth about $877.8 million in a lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to take.

The state doesn't require lottery winners to identify themselves.

Given the missed estimate, the top prize remains a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016. Unless the victor chooses to come forward, the world may never know who won.

In a statement, foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar said Khan's comments made in Twitter posts were "deeply regrettable". He said the reserves could not be exploited in the past due to terrorism and corruption, but things were changing now.

"It's a big, big win for South Carolina", Cooper said.

This unlucky soul posted a picture of their losing lotto ticket on r/funny, but the reason why they lost will make you really feel for them.

South Carolina Education Lottery officials know when and where the winning ticket was bought, but until someone turns the ticket in, they won't know who bought it.

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

'The jackpot's been rolling since it was hit in July in California, but there are few precedents for a jackpot of this size.

Patel said lottery ticket sales were brisk leading up to Tuesday and he has no idea who bought the victor.

Customers, shocked and giddy about the community's sudden notoriety, lined up to buy tickets for the next Mega Millions and for the growing Powerball pot.

"Sell me another lucky one".

"Hopefully it's a local guy to spend it in the community", Patel said.
