The $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot has finally been claimed, more than four months after the winning numbers were drawn.
Yesterday, the South Carolina Education Lottery Commission announced the single winner elected to take the cash option of more than $877 million.
That person will remain anonymous, but he or she is getting the largest jackpot payout to a single winner in U.S Lottery history.
The newly-minted millionaire says on the day they got their ticket, they allowed another person to go ahead of them in line at the store, otherwise, the Quick-pick Megal Millions ticket might have belonged to someone else.
Just shows you how a simple act of kindness can lead to an amazing outcome.
