We are sorry to report you did not win the Mega Millions jackpot &mdash unless you&rsquore one quite lucky person in South Carolina.

A person there possibly couldn&rsquot think their eyes when the magic numbers for the $1.54 billion prize had been announced Tuesday night: 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and the Mega Ball: five. The winning ticket was sold at a convenience retailer, KC Mart No. 7, in Simpsonville, the South Carolina Education Lottery said in a statement. The winner has not however come forward, and has 180 days to do so.

Mega Millions, which revised the jackpot on Wednesday morning from the prior amount of $1.six billion, stated there had been no other winners out of the 15.7 million individuals who purchased tickets. But 36 tickets nationwide have been oh-so-close, matching 5 of six numbers.

Reaction on Twitter came rapidly &mdash at least from those who did not win. Many lamented that, when once again, they would have to go to function on Wednesday.
