A 20-year-old Florida man is claiming a 450-million-dollar Mega Millions jackpot. Lottery officials say Shane Missler bought the sole winning ticket last week at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey, where he lives. And by the way? It was a “quick pick.”
In a brief statement, Missler said he "wasn't really surprised" because he had "a feeling" that he might win. Missler plans to use the windfall to take care of his family, plan for the future and have some fun. "I'm only 20,” he says. “But I hope to use it to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity." To that end, Missler has “retired” and has founded the company, “Secret 007, LLC.”
It's the fourth largest Mega Millions jackpot on record. Lottery officials said Missler opted for the lump sum payment of nearly 282-million-dollars, which will be paid to a trust set up in his name.
