The $400 million dollar man has come forward in South Carolina. The lottery winner has cashed in but he's remaining anonymous, although he does have an interesting story about buying the winning $400 million dollar ticket.

He stopped to get gas on the day of the drawing last Wednesday, his wife wanted him to pick up some hot dog buns.

The store didn't sell buns but after seeing the signs for the huge jackpot he bought 20 dollars worth.

Under state law in South Carolina he does not have to release his name, the lump sum payment is $233 million dollars.
