South Carolina lottery winner where are you? $1.5B still unclaimed, and clock is ticking

February 17, 2019, 10:53 am ET

David Stevenson, a CPA in South Carolina, says he can't think of a good reason why whoever bought an enormous lottery ticket in tiny Simpsonville hasn't cashed in.

The Mega Millions ticket worth more than $1.5 billion was purchased in October. It will be worthless in about two months if no one comes forward to claim the cash.

"I could understand there might have been tax advantages to wait until 2019," Stevenson said Thursday. "But I see no purpose in waiting now. Honestly, I think it's lost."

The winner could walk into lottery...

New Hampshire sues DOJ over new Wire Act ruling

February 15, 2019, 5:25 pm ET

New Hampshire on Friday became the first state to legally challenge last month's U.S. Department of Justice decision to revise the Federal Wire Act, filing a federal lawsuit that would halt enforcement of the opinion that could keep the state from selling lottery tickets online.

The state is asking a U.S. District Court judge to vacate the 23-page opinion from the Department's Office of Legal Counsel, confirm that the Wire Act does not apply to state lotteries, and permanently keep the Justice Department from acting on the opinion.

New Hampshire's lottery, which supports public education in the state, generated $87.5 million in net profits that went toward funding public schools, according to a statement from Governor Chris Sununu.
