Don’t you just hate it when you see a headline like this one and you catch yourself thinking, why doesn’t that happen to me? What is he going to do with all that money at his age anyway? Yes, its human instinct to feel that twinge of jealousy about this barely out of his teen’s lottery player experienced.
$451 Million Mega Million Jackpot Win
Shane Missler started out the day just like the rest of us mere mortals. The 20-year-old Tampa Bay resident had a day to remember though with the Mega Millions draw on the 5th of January 2018. He bought a Mega Millions Quick Pick for the massive lottery jackpot.
The rest, as they say, is history.
With that single lottery ticket purchase, he is about to transform his and those closest to him and whoever he chooses lives. That was the day fortune smiled down on him and granted him a £451 Million dollar win.
Take The Cash – Take The Cash
The single ticket win on this $451 Million is not a lump sum cash win. Mega Millions is an annuity lottery meaning that if a cash payment is chosen, a part of it is forfeited. The cash-only prize amount totals $281,874,999.
That’s right, one cent short of $281,875,000 which would have made it easier to read at the very least. Now that we have got over our envious state it is nice to read about what he intends to do with this particular fortune.
What To Do With The Millions
He has of course firstly collected his cash prize with the aid of his father. He has also officially retired and has stated that he is going to be doing a lot of good for his family and some for humanity.
With that kind of cash pile, he is going to be able to live out his dreams and help a lot of people.
How Did He Win This Lottery Jackpot
Well, it all started off with actually buying a Mega Millions lottery ticket. Then a healthy dose of good fortune appeared for this positive thinking individual and he can now do anything he wants to for the rest of his existence.
Biggest Lottery Jackpot of 2018
What a lovely start to 2018 for him and we hope that you too will experience this kind of fortune at some stage. It’s the feel-good million dollar win of the year so far we think.
Our last words in this article come from the winner himself who had the following to say
“If there is one thing I have learned thus far in my short time on this earth is that those who maintain a positive mindset and stay true to themselves get rewarded,I look forward to the future.”
