Whoever has the winning ticket for the $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot still has not come forward, SC lottery officials say. The retailer that sold the ticket gets a $50,000 cut once the prize is claimed.
The winning numbers for the October 23 drawing were 5, 28, 62, 65, 70, and Mega Ball 5.
One winning ticket for the jackpot was sold in Simpsonville, South Carolina, in the northwest part of the state.

The report said that the victor has 180 days to step forward.
They have until April 21.
Seth Elkin, a spokesman for Maryland Lottery and Gaming, told ABC News on Tuesday that the identity of the person who bought the ticket at a KC Mart in Simpsonville, South Carolina, was still a mystery.
"Eight were in California, four each in Florida and NY, two each in Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, New Jersey and Virginia, and one each in Arizona, the District of Columbia, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin", according to the Mega Millions website.
If the jackpot is unclaimed, the money will return to the participating states.
"We have not heard that the victor in SC has come forward", Elkin said.
Tony Cooper, the chief operating officer with the South Carolina Education Lottery, advised the victor to sign the back of the lottery ticket, keep it in a safe place and seek a reliable financial advisor.
The victor can choose a lump-sum payment of $878 million, or $1.537 billion in taxed annual payments over 30 years.
