The $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot has finally been claimed, more than four months after the winning numbers were drawn.
On Monday the South Carolina Education Lottery Commission announced a single winner elected to take the cash option of more than $877 million.
It is the largest payout to a single person in US lottery history.
The winner has chosen to remain anonymous.
But the winner did say when they bought their ticket last October, they allowed another person to go ahead of them in line at the store.
Otherwise the quick pick Mega Millions ticket might have belonged to a different winner.
