Pence, who was presiding over the chamber, broke the tie by casting the 51st vote to confirm Kobes.

2018 was chock-full of lucky jackpot winners, but none more so the lucky duck who won the $1.6 billion Mega Millions prize that took the country by storm in October.

Lottery officials say someone bought a ticket in South Carolina to win the Mega Millions jackpot with a final total of $1.537 billion, just shy of the all-time world record. The ticket was worth about $877.8 million.

Home » Gambling News » Were you a winner ? 2018 saw record - breaking jackpots . 2018 saw record - breaking jackpots . Lottery officials say someone bought a ticket in South Carolina to win the Mega Millions jackpot with a final total of .537 billion, just shy of the all-time world record.

As of December 16, no one had stepped forward to claim the Oct. 23 ticket. And, it's possible the world will never know who bought it. South Carolina is one of eight states — along with Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio and Texas — where winners can remain anonymous.

October was also a busy month for the Powerball lottery drawings. The $343.9 million jackpot was split between two winners. One was a woman from Iowa who donated a portion of her winnings to a program for disabled veterans, while also creating a foundation to help improve those in need in her area; and the other was a New York man, who planned to buy his mother a house "with a little land around it,” and take some time to travel.

Another lucky New Yorker has his dog to thank for taking home a $10 million prize.

Aussie teen 'Terminator' Titmus sets swimming world record

Aussie teen 'Terminator' Titmus sets swimming world record Australian prodigy Ariarne Titmus broke the women's short-course 400m freestyle record on Friday to grab her second gold medal at the World Swimming Championships in China. In a battle of the talented teenagers, the 18-year-old -- dubbed the "Terminator" -- blasted away the twin threat of home hopes Wang Jianjiahe and Li Bingjie in Hangzhou's 25m pool. Titmus claimed a dominant victory in 3mins 53.92secs, narrowly bettering the 3:53.97 clocked in October by rival Wang, who is just 16. Wang, an easy winner in the 800m freestyle on Thursday, was forced into silver, 0.64secs behind Titmus, with Li a distant 4.07secs off.

This is a collection of notable lottery jackpot records in the United States and Europe, listing the largest prizes/ jackpots awarded in various drawings.

Dale Farrand, 73, went into a convenience store to buy his dog Boots a pack of Slim Jims. He ended up also buying a $30 scratch-off lottery ticket.

Farrand scratched the ticket in his car and realized he was a winner. The ticket was worth $10 million.

Long before these jackpots, the year began with a Powerball winner in New Hampshire who eventually decided to remain anonymous, though it wasn’t without a fight. A judge ruled that the woman, who was the sole winner of the $559 million Powerball drawing on Jan. 6, could keep her name private.

In his ruling, the judge said that information about the winner’s hometown can be published but that releasing her name would be a violation of privacy, and the information is exempt from the state's right-to-know law.

The New Hampshire Lottery paid out a lump sum of $352 million to the woman’s trust. Her lawyers announced that she had donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to local nonprofits.

The winner, known in court filings as “Jane Doe,” followed advice she received on the state lottery's website in signing the ticket with her own name.

The state tried to argue that under the law, personally signing the ticket meant that her name was public information. Her lawyers argued that her interest in privacy outweighed the public’s right to know who won one of the largest lottery jackpots on U.S. history.

As we all move into 2019, let’s keep those fingers crossed that one of us becomes the next lottery superstar.

Good luck!
