(NBC) - The winner of last week’s huge Mega Millions Jackpot has come forward and oddly enough he’s not even old enough to celebrate with a glass of champagne.
The winning ticket was purchased at a 7 Eleven store in Port Richey, Florida.
Twenty-year-old Shane Missler Matched the winning numbers so he gets the $450 million dollar prize.
Missler chose to take the lump sum payment so he’ll collect approximately 282 million dollars before taxes.
The 20-year-old has not spoken publicly but did release a statement through his lawyers.
Missler says he had a feeling that he was going to win and he hopes to use the money to pursue a variety of passions, help his family and do some good for the humanity.
Missler’s lawyers say he is recently retired and plans to learn more about taking care of his finances.
