20-year-old Florida man claims $450 million lottery jackpot

The teenager who won $450 million Mega Millions jackpot has been identified as 20-year-old Shane Missler from Florida.

Shane Missler chose to claim a one-time, lump sum payment of $282 million.

Missler took to Facebook to share his excitement about winning.

The jackpot is the fourth largest in Mega Millions history.

The winning jackpot ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven on Ridge Road in Port Richey.

Instead of taking the full prize across several payments over a period of time, the Florida resident opted to receive a one-time payment of nearly $282m (£205m).

Then he met with his father the following morning for a cup of coffee, officials said.

Missler's lawyers say he recently retired from his job at a local background screening company and plans to spend his future taking care of his family and "educating himself to be a good steward of this fortune".

"I feel so fortunate to have this incredible wealth and team behind me", the statement continued.

The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, 70, and the Mega Ball was 10. The convenience store will also get $100,000 for selling the winning ticket.

Missler opted not to take a picture or give an interview.

The largest Mega Millions jackpot of all time was $656 million in March 2012. "I look forward to the future".

The victor of the $560 million Powerball ticket in New Hampshire has not yet come forward.
