Florida man claims $US451 million jackpot

Florida man, 20, wins US$451m in Mega Millions

The 20-year-old Florida man who just won the $451 Million jackpot from Mega Millions is no stranger to spending fat stacks, because the dude already plunked down cash when he bought his first vehicle.

He elected to take the lump sum option of $281,874,999, and has already had his lawyer set up a trust for him to manage.

Missler plans on pursuing a "variety of passions", according the Florida lottery, but plans to help others as well.

Missler took to Facebook to share his excitement about winning.

Missler used money he won from a scratch-off lottery ticket, buying five quick-pick Mega Millions tickets.

The 7-Eleven store that sold the winning ticket will receive a $100,000 bonus commission. He reportedly broke the news to his dad over a cup of coffee the next morning.

"Although I'm young, I've had a crash course this week in financial management and I feel so fortunate to have this incredible wealth and team behind me", said Missler, who also told the Times that he plans to move out of Port Richey.

Missler quit his job at a local background screening company shortly after the win.

On January 5, 2018, the Mega Millions winning numbers were 28-30-39-59-70 and the Mega Ball was 10. "I look forward to the future", Missler said in a statement released by his lawyer.

There was only one Mega Millions ticket sold that won a jackpot worth $450 million. A Florida victor split a $414 million jackpot in 2014, previously the high mark for any ticket sold in the Sunshine State.
