A man named Shane Missler has claimed a $450 million payday with the only winning ticket for one of the largest jackpots in Florida state lottery history.
The ticket was purchased January 5th at a 7-Eleven store in Pasco County.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Missler has already left his job and says he wants to care for his family. He also says he wants to further his education so he can become a "good steward of his newfound wealth", according to a news release from his legal team.
"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," Missler said in his release.
He finished by saying, "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."
