1.5 Billion Mega Millions jackpot still unclaimed 3 weeks after drawing

A jackpot worth over $1.6 billion (Ksh.160 billion) still remains unclaimed three weeks after the draw.

Check your numbers: victor announced in record $1.6 billion Mega Millions lottery, the largest jackpot in the history of the game.

It matched all six numbers - 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5 - and became South Carolina's first ever Mega Millions jackpot win.

The victor has 180 days from the drawing to come forward.

If the victor never comes forward, each participating state in the Mega Millions game gets back all the money that their state contributed.

If the ticket is not claimed in the allotted time, "each participating state in the Mega Millions game will get back all the money that state contributed to the unclaimed jackpot", according to the Mega Millions website, noting that "each state uses its unclaimed lottery prizes for different purposes".

The owner of the convenience store CJ Patel said last month that he had no idea who bought the winning ticket.

The lucky victor can choose to receive a lump sum of $878 million or $1.537 billion in installments over 30 years.

"We have not heard that the victor in SC has come forward", Elkin said. The lucky person can also take an $877.8 million lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to receive.

After the monumental win, the lottery urged the potential victor to sign the ticket, drop it in a safe and get financial advice from a planner or lawyer.

He said he planned to distribute some of the $50,000 winnings he got for selling the ticket to his staff.

If the victor doesn't claim the money, it could go back into the game's prize pool or be given to South Carolina's development programs and plans funded by Mega Millions' profits.
