Someone in South Carolina Won $1.54 Billion Mega Millions Jackpot. Could it be a Kenyan?


We are hoping it is a Kenyan!

A winning ticket for the Mega Millions jackpot was sold somewhere in South Carolina. No one has publicly come forward

According to Mega Millions, there were no other winners out of the 15.7 million people who bought tickets. However, 36 tickets nationwide were oh-so-close, matching five of six numbers. This means one person will have control over $1.6 billion jackpot!!!

Lotto fever has gripped the nation in recent weeks as jackpots have continued to swell. Tuesday’s $1.54 billion prize — which offered a lump sum of $878 million — was initially advertised as the largest lottery prize ever, surpassing the $1.59 billion Powerball jackpot drawn in 2016. But when the amount was lowered on Wednesday, it became the second largest ever.

Supposing the winner is a Kenyan, how much does $1.6 billion translate to, in Kenya Shilling?
