Think back 3 weeks ago when the Mega Millions jackpot reached 1.5 BILLION. This was one of the worlds largest jackpots. The winning ticket was sold in Simpsonville South Carolina and the winner still has NOT claimed the winnings
Lottery ticket winners have 180 days to claim their winnings if the winnings are not claimed the money is returned to each state. Several sources say this is not uncommon for such a large jackpot winner to have not claimed the prize yet. Many believe that the winner is using this time to gather information as far as accountants etc. I don’t know about you but I would have been rushing to claim my prize the next day.
