Poker Players Go Wild For $1.6 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot

South Carolina adds 2nd billionaire with huge jackpot ticket
The grand prize was overestimated, however, and the ticket sold in SC with all six winning Mega Millions numbers wound up with a $1.537 billion jackpot.
Also, South Carolina's Mega Millions victor isn't the only one going home with some money.
The six winning numbers were printed on a ticket sold at the store off Lee Vaughn Road, about a 6.5km drive from city hall.
A Pasco County woman cashed in on the excitement during the October 17 Powerballdrawing, winning $2 million on a ticket she purchased at Winn Dixie on U.S. 19 in Hudson. That's because the ticket matching all six numbers was sold in SC, and the state is one of eight states where winners can remain anonymous. But it shattered the previous Mega Millions record jackpot of $656 million, which was shared by winners in Maryland, Kansas and IL in March 2012.

Many people won't even notice a jackpot unless they hear it's the largest ever, he said. The lucky person can also take an $877.8 million lump-sum cash payment, which most winners choose to receive. The winners have one year to claim their prizes. With more than $1.5 billion, an exceedingly generous victor could shower roughly $307 on each of the state's five million people. Sales reached almost $740 million during that time, lottery officials said. Kansas Mega Millions sales were $4,579,551.

The caravan was headed for Tapachula, a city about 37 km (23 miles) north of the Mexico-Guatemala border, the officers told CNN. A growing crowd of Central American migrants is resuming its advance toward the USA border in southern Mexico on Sunday.
The victor doesn't stand much chance of staying anonymous if he or she is local, Curtis said.
"Does it make a difference to somebody this morning that when they thought they were going to win $1.6 billion and they only won $1.537 billion?" he asked.
"Hopefully it's a local guy to spend it in the community", Patel said.
