The ticket was sold in SC. The pool featured a $1 million winning ticket.

After selling a $1.5 billion winning lottery ticket, SC convenience store owner CJ Patel says he plans to share part of the business' $50,000 bonus with his employees.

The town of 22,000, about 14 miles from Greenville, was abuzz as people clamored to learn more about the victor, but in SC, the person who hit the jackpot can opt to remain anonymous.

The winning numbers for the estimated $750 million Powerball game have been drawn.

The drawing comes on the heels of a near-record $1.5 billion Mega Millions drawing earlier this week.

The patient was brought to the hospital after he'd been hurt trying to buy a lottery ticket, so the employees, while taking care of his injuries, also took care of getting him a ticket.

The victor or winners would also have a one-time cash option of $428.6 million - a prize that's still more than alright.

The Powerball jackpot has rolled over since it was last won in August, the lottery said. His ticket did not match the Mega Ball, but did match all five of the white ball numbers. Most were rewarded with a $1 million prize, but two of them, in Florida and Texas, added a Megaplier option, tripling their winnings to $3 million.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.

States receive a percentage of lottery ticket sales and use the money to support public schools or to meet other needs.
