Remember that enormous Mega Millions winner back in October? People were really starting to freak out in South Carolina. Nobody came forward with the ticket. The deadline was fast approaching to claim the money. What if someone didn’t even realize they won? What if the ticket got lost?

The mystery is over. They say the winner has stepped up with the ticket. They chose the lump sum payment of about $877 million. Channel 8 says the winner says they bought the ticket after letting another customer take the spot in front of them in line that day!
