$878M South Carolina lottery winner sharing with charities

"We are delighted that the victor is a South Carolinian and has come forward to claim this remarkable prize", Hogan Brown, the state lottery commission's executive director, said in a statement.

Her lawyer said in the news release that the victor plans to use some of the money for "philanthropic endeavors" in S.C., and also specifically in Simpsonville.

Kurland added that she checked her ticket the morning after the drawing and was in shock and disbelief, standing motionless for what felt like hours.

The jackpot for the October 23 drawing was $1.5 billion if the victor took payments over 30 years.

Kurland said the victor was taking a scenic drive when she spotted a sign advertising the almost-world-record-breaking prize.

She wishes to remain anonymous because she wants to "live a life of relative normalcy, free of fear", she said in a statement issued Thursday by her lawyer, Jason Kurland.

The victor has chosen to remain anonymous and chose a cash option of a one-time payment of $877,784,124, the largest jackpot payout to a single victor in USA history.

In South Carolina, the ultimate dream was realized.

The state's budget plan that just passed the House offers a $50 rebate check to every taxpayer symbolically linked to the estimated $61 million in state income taxes the victor will pay on the jackpot.

If she hadn't surfaced before the six-month deadline, the entire pot would have been divided among all 44 states participating in the Mega Millions contest, based on each state's percentage of total sales.

The woman wouldn't officially claim the winning ticket for 131 days. It's exciting, we pass out that billion dollars to someone.
