Moments after the announcement, Missler's Facebook page was quickly flooded with congratulations messages.

Missler is a Florida resident and is taking the lump sum of almost $282 million.

A week after the numbers were drawn in the $451 million Mega Millions, the sole victor of the jackpot is stepping forward, and he's originally from Maine. He chose to take the lump sum payout - about $282 million.

Missler "A believer in the power of a positive mindset, Shane wasn't really surprised that he had won", the Florida Lottery said. He later told his father the following morning over a coffee.

Missler plans on pursuing a "variety of passions", according the Florida lottery, but plans to help others as well.

Missler will actually pocket $281,874,999.00 after taking the lump-sum payment for his winning ticket, according to the Florida Lottery.

The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, 70, and the Mega Ball was 10. The jackpot is the fourth-largest in Mega Millions history, and Missler is the sole victor.

"Although I'm young I've had a crash course this week in financial management and I feel so fortunate to have this incredible wealth and team behind me".

Shane Missler bought a quick-pick Mega Millions ticket at a 7-Eleven and realized that his life was about to change forever a couple of hours after the drawing. "I look forward to the future", Missler said in a statement released by his lawyer.
