'Our message to the $1.5 BILLION #Mega Millions jackpot victor: Sign the back of the ticket, place the ticket in a safe location, speak with a trusted advisor and CALL THE LOTTERY at 1-866-736-9819, ' the tweet read.

A single ticket sold in SC matched all numbers in the historic drawing to make the lucky holder of the ticket rich beyond belief.

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 lottery ticket holder in SC has scooped the largest jackpot in USA history.

'The final total was less than the $1.6 billion estimate, ' confirmed Carol Gentry, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Lottery, which leads a consortium of state lotteries participating in the Mega Millions jackpot. Had there not been a victor, a drawing for a record $1.6 billion jackpot would have been held on Friday.

The buyer of the ticket beat the odds of 1 in 303 million to win the Mega Millions drawing for one of the largest jackpots in U.S. history.

Lottery officials have not announced the identities of a victor or winners.

The victor can take $913 million in a lump sum cash payment or the whole pile in annuities over 29 years.

CJ Patel is the owner of KC Mart No. 7 in Simpsonville.

Earlier estimates had said this week's Mega Millions game would be the largest lottery jackpot ever.

HGTV hasn't revealed whether they plan on trying to cast the victor to star in an episode, but its casting page offers some insights into how its stars are chosen: If you've won the lottery in the past year, purchased or plan to purchase a new home with your winnings, or plan to renovate your existing home with your winnings, you qualify. The victor has 180 days to collect the jackpot.

Only five lottery jackpots have been larger, but with two giant prizes in one week, it's hard not to compare. The jackpot is an estimated $620 million. And the individual with the winning Mega Millions ticket will have to make a big decision: Take the lump sum or annual payments?
