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.

That goes to what's in Bradbury's novel that's different than the other classic - 1984 - Bradbury says, we asked for this... The movie script for " Fahrenheit 451 " has something like stage directions, but it's more like narration, Cherne said.

The winning numbers were 28, 30, 39, 59, and 70 with a "Mega Ball" of 10. "I look forward to the future", Missler said in a statement released by his lawyer.

The man, who worked as a verification specialist at a background screening firm - according to his Facebook - told the Tampa Bay Times he was going to "take care" of his family. If there is one thing I have learned thus far in my short time on this earth is that those who maintain a positive mindset and stay true to themselves get rewarded.

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

The jackpot-winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at 7-Eleven, located at 7131 Ridge Road in Port Richey.
