Feeling Lucky? Meet The 20 Year Old Dude Who Just Won The $451 Million Mega Millions Jackpot


For Complex News, I'm Hanuman Welch.

Nearly half a billion dollars in lottery winnings is headed to a single man in Florida. We should also mention that homeboy is a baby-faced twenty year old who can't order a drink at the bar, but he can now buy the bar, then the building the bar is in, and the entire city block where the building rests.

On Friday, the Newport Richey, Florida resident came forward to claim the $451 million jackpot from the Jan. 5 drawing, making him the sole winner of the fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions’ history. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Shane Missler declined the annual installment option and chose to take his winnings in a lump sum payout of $281.2 million. So, what will he do with his newly acquired wealth? It sounds like he’ll do the responsible thing.

“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. 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. I intend to take care of my family, have some fun along the way and cement a path for financial success so that I can leave a legacy far into the future.”

Apparently Missler had “a feeling” he would win big after he purchased five Quick Pick tickets at a 7-Eleven, using the winnings from a scratch ticket. When he realized one of the tickets had the winning numbers—8, 30, 39, 59, 70 and the Mega Ball, 10—he called up his brother and set up a coffee date with his attorney father for the following day. He then decided to set up a trust, with him as the managing member, called Secret 007, LLC.

Sounds like he’s taking a very sensible approach. Can’t say I’d do the same if I was a in his position at 20. What would you do with 280 million dollars, let us know and for everything else subscribe to Complex on Youtube, for complex news, I'm Hanuman Welch.
