It was a mystery for months wether the ticket would be claimed with people even thinking that the winner was unaware or even lost the ticket.
The winner of the largest payout of a lottery in U.S. histroy decided to remain anonymous and also elected to the lamb sum amount which was a cool $800,000. Can I get a piece of that?
