A twenty-year-old has just been revealed as the sole victor of a US$451 million (AUD$569,500,000) lottery jackpot - the fourth-largest in the history of the Mega Millions competition. He made a decision to take the lump sum payout - about $282 million.

Florida Lottery said it was the fourth largest Mega Millions win in history.

Mr Missler said: "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". He reportedly broke the news to his dad over a cup of coffee the next morning.

Missler took to Facebook to share his excitement about winning.

There was only one Mega Millions ticket sold that won a jackpot worth $450 million.

The winning ticket was purchased on January 5 from the 7-Eleven store on Ridge Road in Pasco County.
