20 Year Old Wins $451 Million Lottery Jackpot And Says He Hopes To Use Winnings To Give Back


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The 20-year-old Florida man who claimed the $451 million Mega Millions jackpot choose to get $282 million at once instead of more in annual installments.

A Florida Lottery news release Friday said 20-year-old Shane Missler, of Port Richey, had claimed the jackpot from the multistate game's Jan. 5 drawing. They say he chose to receive his winnings in a one-time, lump-sum payment of $281,874,999.


"I'm only 20, but I hope to use it to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity," he said in a statement.
