20-year-old jack­pot win­ner hopes to do ‘good for hu­man­ity’

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - NATION -

TAL­LA­HAS­SEE, FLA. >> A 20-year-old Florida man has claimed the $451 mil­lion Mega Mil­lions jack­pot, choos­ing to get $282 mil­lion at once in­stead of more in an­nual in­stall­ments.

A Florida Lot­tery news re­lease said Fri­day that 20-yearold 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 $282 mil­lion. “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.

The win­ning num­bers to claim the na­tion’s 10th-largest jack­pot were 28-30-39-59-70 with a Mega Ball of 10.

The win­ning ticket was bought at a 7-Eleven in Port Richey. The re­tailer will re­ceive a $100,000 bonus.
