And the state of SC is set to collect $61million in taxes from the victor.

For months, SC residents had speculated on why the victor hadn't stepped forward.
Some theorised the victor was on the run from police and feared a background check if he or she won.
Others speculated the winning ticket had been purchased by an office pool and was now the subject of litigation.
The buyer of the winning ticket beat the odds of 1 in 303 million to win the drawing for a grand prize of US$1.537 billion, just short of a word record Powerball jackpot of US$1.586 billion in January 2016.
In the four days leading up to the drawing, about 370 million of the US$2 Mega Millions tickets were sold in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
The winner's decision to come forward comes months after the October 23 drawing produced the winning numbers 5, 28, 62, 65 and 70. "We couldn't be happier for them and are thrilled they took the time to assemble the right team before coming in to claim". Taxpayers in the state may get a US$50 (NZ$73) rebate as a result of the win, the newspaper said. "Obviously, South Carolina will reap the benefits of that", state House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Murrell Smith said, according to the newspaper.
