Shane Missler (pictured with his sister) is a Boston Celtics fan – he could now pay the team’s stadium gate receipts five times over

Shane Missler matched five numbers and a bonus ball to scoop the fourth largest win in the US game’s history.

He opted to receive a one-time payment of $282m, instead of the full amount over a longer period of time.

Mr Missler said he had a feeling he could win on the night of the Mega Millions draw, says a press release

Minutes after the draw a week ago he posted on Facebook: “Oh. My. God.”

Mr Missler presented his winning ticket at the state lottery headquarters in Tallahassee on Friday, accompanied by his father and a lawyer.

He said he has big plans for his winnings.

“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,” said Mr Missler, according to the statement.

He told the Tampa Bay Times : “I intend to take care of my family, have some fun along the way and cement a path for financial success so that I can leave a legacy far into the future.”

His lawyer said his client had “retired” from his job at a company that carried out employment background checks.

Mr Missler bought the winning ticket at a 7-Eleven in his hometown of Port Richey, 40 miles (64km) north of Tampa, using a “Quick Pick” option that selects the numbers randomly.

The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, and 70 with a “Mega Ball” of 10.

“If there is one thing I have learned thus far in my short time on this earth it is that those who maintain a positive mindset and stay true to themselves get rewarded,” Mr Missler said.

“I look forward to the future.”

  2. God bless him more. Here in Zambia some of us used to play the online ones but since November 2017 the banks have stopped releasing funds towards online lotteries and goods purchases. One Zambian was going to bring that money in Zambia for the bennefit of many including contributing in terms of taxes.
