20-year-old Port Richey man claims $450 million MEGA MILLIONS jackpot

Missler is a Florida resident and is taking the lump sum of almost $282 million.

Missler said he wasn't surprised that he had won and that he had "a feeling" that he might.

A 20-year-old from Florida says he plans to "have some fun" after being named sole victor of a $451m (£330m) lottery jackpot.

Shane Missler, of Port Richey, was the lone victor of the January 5 jackpot.

According to Missler's attorney, Shane purchased the Mega Millions ticket with the proceeds from a winning scratch off lottery ticket. The next morning, he told his father over cups of coffee.

Missler - who is originally from ME and a proud fan of the New England Patriots and Boston Celtics, according to his social media accounts - will take the lump sum of $281,874,999, according to a statement from his lawyer.

"I'm only 20, but I hope to use [the money] to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity", Missler said, ABC News reported.

The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, and 70 with a "Mega Ball" of 10.

"Sure, it was a 12-year-old vehicle, but Missler - who just retired from his job as a background screener - stressed that "#HardWorkPaysOff". "I look forward to the future", Missler said in a statement released by his lawyer.

A Mega Millions ticket is pictured in a store in New York City, Jan. 5, 2018.

The 7-Eleven that sold the winning ticket will get a $100,000 commission.
