A single person in South Caroline hit the jackpot winning the 400 million dollar Powerball yesterday.

According to Paula Harper Bethea, the educational lottery executive director, the ticket was sold in the town of Lexington, with a population of just under 20,000 in the center of the Palmetto state. So far the winner of the lottery has been advised to “sign the back of the ticket, put it in a safe location, seek financial or legal advice form a trusted source, and then come forward to claim the ticket.”
