Update: The ticket has been claimed.

A $250,000 Mega Millions lottery ticket was sold at the Lady's Island Publix, and no one has yet claimed it.

The ticket sold in Beaufort matched all five white ball numbers drawn Tuesday night: 1, 4, 6, 11, and 14 (Megaball 30, Megaplier 4).

So, check your tickets — and maybe that odd piece of paper rolling around in the street. 

More than 19,500 players in South Carolina hold tickets for prizes from $2 up to $250,000. Players have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prizes.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 175,711,536.
