There’s someone out there who’s either not quite ready to join the list of the world’s billionaires . . . or who doesn’t even realize they can.
Remember three weeks ago when there was ONE winning ticket for the $1.5 BILLION Mega Millions jackpot? Well whoever bought that ticket in Simpsonville, South Carolina still hasn’t come forward to claim the prize.
And they only have 180 days to do it . . . so clock’s ticking.
If the person never claims it, all of the states that kick in for the Mega Millions jackpot get their money back, and they can use the money however they want. They can put it back toward the lottery, or use it for something lame like education or taxes.
Why hasn’t the person claimed the prize yet? You might think it’s because they’re not ready for their life to change . . . but South Carolina is one of the few states where winners can choose to stay anonymous.
So . . . we’re not sure. Are they just taking their time? Waiting until after the holidays so they don’t have to buy expensive presents? Or maybe they don’t even KNOW they bought the winning ticket.
