Time Running Out For $1.5B Jackpot Winner To Collect Cash
The winner of the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot has still not stepped forward more than two months after the ticket was sold in South Carolina, officials quoted by Fox News have said.
The numbers were announced on October 23.
But lottery officials are baffled by the no-show so far of the winner, according to local news reports.
The winner has a total of 180 days to claim the money, according to state law, and the countdown starts from when the winning numbers were announced.
If the prize is not claimed, the jackpot will be returned to the 44 states that participate in the lottery.
