Shane Missler Wins $281,874,999 Mega Millions Jackpot

20-year-old Florida man Shane Missler was the recent winner of a $450 million Mega Millions jackpot, that ended up as a lump-sum payment of $281,874,999.00 after choosing the one-time payment option, according to the Florida Lottery.

The Celtics and Patriots fan from Port Richey, Florida seems ready for the challenge of living with this type of money.

ā€œIā€™m only 20, but I hope to use it to pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity,ā€ the winner said, according to lottery officials.

Here’s Shane’s Facebook message the night of the drawing…maybe he saw a great basketball play or maybe he just reacted to winning a $450 million jackpot:

From 2016:

First car! Proud to say I paid in cash. #HardWorkPaysOff
