He’s not old enough to drink but he’s $451 million richer.
That’s Shane Missler, a 20-year-old who bought the winning Mega Millions ticket from a 7-Eleven in Port Richey.
“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,” Missler said in a news release from the Florida Lottery on Friday.
Missler said he wasn’t surprised that he had won and that he had “a feeling” that he might.
When he realized he had won, he called his brother first.
On his Facebook page on Jan. 5, the evening of the drawing, Missler had also shared a brief post, “Oh. My. God.” (via Sun-Sentinel)
