> One winning ticket sold in $450M Mega Millions drawing sole winner of the fourth-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history on Friday.

Shane Missler, of Port Richey, won a stunning $451 million jackpot, which he chose to receive in a lump-sum payment of $281,874,999, lottery officials said.

“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.

Missler, who will turn 21 in May, bought his triumphant Quick Pick ticket at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey with money he’d won from a scratch-off lottery ticket, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

“The power of positive thinking should not be underestimated!” he tweeted Friday.

Missler claimed he wasn’t shocked by his big win — as he had “a feeling” he just might hit the jackpot, lottery officials said.

But he still expressed his disbelief in a Facebook post minutes after the Jan. 5 drawing.

“Oh. My. God.,” he wrote at 11:33 p.m.

His winning combination was 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and Mega Ball, 10.

Missler shared news of his newfound fortune with his brother first, then spilled the beans to his dad over coffee the next morning, lottery officials said.

The Maine native quickly “retired” from his job at a background screening company, and plans to move away from the Tampa Bay area.

“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,” Missler said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times.

“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.”

Missler flashed a big smile as he turned in his winning lottery ticket on Friday afternoon with his dad and a lawyer. The lump sum will be paid to a trust — called “Secret 007, LLC” — that Missler manages.

Even before his big win, Missler’s Twitter feed was filled with inspirational messages, like “No more talk, only action” and “Do or do not, there is no try.”
