Lottery officials still do not know whether it is one person or a group who has the lucky ticket for one of the biggest prizes in the multi-state game.
Once the ticket holder comes forward, they can choose annuity valued at $400 million or take a lump sum in cash of $223 million. After taxes, that equates to approximately $134 million.
South Carolina Educational Lottery Executive Director Paula Harper Bethea told NBC News on Thursday that the ticket was sold at a Murphy USA store on Augusta Road in Lexington.
There are approximately 20,000 people living in Lexington and someone has the winning lottery numbers printed on their ticket.
It is not known if the winner will come forward immediately, but lottery officials plan to have a press conference at 11 a.m. ET at the Murpy USA store where the ticket was sold.
