A week after the numbers were drawn in the $450 million Mega Millions, the sole winner of the jackpot is stepping forward.

Shane Missler, a 20-year-old who bought the ticket from a 7-Eleven in Port Richey, Fla., posted a simple Facebook message the night of the drawing on Jan. 5.

“Oh. My. God.”

Now, there’s context to that message.

“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,” he said in a release from Walt Blenner of the Blenner Law Group. “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.”

The winning numbers were: 28, 30, 39, 59, 70 and the Mega Ball was 10.

Missler hasn’t indicated if he’ll take annual payments or a lump sum payout of $281.2 million.
