It took the winner of a record California  Mega Millions  jackpot several weeks to come forward because he didn't realize he had the ticket, officials said. He was identified Friday as Steve Tran, but lottery officials said he asked that no other information about his background be revealed. The ticket is worth $324 million, or half the $648-million jackpot. If Tran chooses the cash option, his ticket is estimated to be worth $173.8 million. Lottery officials said Tran followed the media coverage about the jackpot.

The owner of this week's second winning Mega Millions jackpot ticket, purchased in San Jose, had yet to come forward Friday, and that's understandable, a lottery spokesman said. “Someone's about to present you with a check for $173.8 million. How do you prepare for that? … What do you do with that?" said California Lottery spokesman Alex Traverso. "You don't just walk that [check] over to a bank and hand it to a teller. " That huge check is the split share of the $648-million jackpot prize -- the second largest in the game's history.
