    Default Florida winner of $451m jackpot will do 'good for humanity'

    A 20-year-old from Florida says he plans to "have some fun" after being named sole winner of a $451m (330m) lottery jackpot.
    Shane Missler matched five numbers and a bonus ball to scoop the fourth largest win in the US game's history.

    I hate him What a waste of $451M. On a 20 years old.

    Couple of years. 20? He'll get jacked out of half of it at least. Wast the other half.

    Mommy needs a house. Cousin Gertrude needs a makeover. Says he wants to do "good" in the World. Every charity with a phone will be calling. Soon to be ex will sue him for half. All his new GFs will spend a bunch.

    I don't see much left.

    Me neither. Generally lottery winners are back to where they started or worse within 3 years. I just wondered with it being hundreds of millions if this will be any different.

    You should realize that he didn't actually "win" the lottery, he's the the son or nephew of someone at the top of the lottery system and was chosen, he'll get a share of the pot while the rest is given in tribute to the lottery cabal, that's why he said he'd "do good for humanity".

    Honestly, you people are so naive, gambling will always be a sin and corrupt.

    Are you dense or what?

    YES, he WON the fucking MEGA MILLIONS "LOTTERY" GAME. The jackpot was $451M and he'll cash out with a one time payment of $282M, period, HE WON.

    But what an absolute WASTE of a $282M jackpot. A little 20 year old PUNK. But what baffles me is, WHY did he pay some 37.4% in TAXES? Did they just pass a huge tax cut? I thought the TOP RATE went DOWN to like 25%...??

    I doubt I'll ever play those BALL LOTTERY GAMES again, any of them. In fact, if they get back up there and I'm tempted, instead I'll go to the bar and spend that $10 on a nice big fat juicy burger and a cold beer, and I'll be fed and happy instead of pissed off that I just WASTED money.

    I do play the scratch off games. There's either FAR more payouts or I'm a lot more lucky on them. I hit payback money quite often, but I also hit more. Hit $100 last summer on one, $30 just a week ago, on $5 scratch offs, and of course there's a MUCH BETTER chance of hitting a jackpot on one of those too, for $50K or something, and hells bells, I could surely use $50K.

    Indifferent is not the definition of naive. You need to work on your English. I never said a word about lotteries being rigged. YOU did. By your mythical Jewish cabal that's out to get everyone.

    I have not once in my life paid for nor possessed a lottery ticket. If someone wasn't making money from it I'm sure it wouldn't exist. I'm equally sure "someone" not a Jewish cabal".
