LEXINGTON, S.C. —
The winner of South Carolina's nearly $400 million Powerball jackpot has come forward. The winning ticket was submitted to the lottery office in Columbia, but the winner wants to remain anonymous. Lottery officials said this was only the second time the winner has ever played the lottery. The man said he stopped at the Murphy Express on Augusta Road gas station the day of the drawing when his wife called and told him to pick up hot dog buns. He said he went inside the store and bought $20 worth of tickets, but did not get hot dog buns because the store doesn't sell them. Murphy Express will receive a $50,000 bonus now that the prize has been claimed. The winning ticket means an additional $15 million in tax revenue for the state. This was the state's seventh Powerball jackpot win and its largest ever. A $1 million ticket was sold in Hampton, S.C.
