God: The $620 million reason a 20-year-old American just retiredHow do you tell your father that you've just won more than $620 million? For 20-year-old US man Shane Missler, it was over coffee the day after he hit the lottery jackpot. Missler, from Tampa, Florida, is the winner of the whopping $451 million (NZ$621.6m) Mega Millions prize, the Florida Lottery announced on Friday (Saturday NZ time). According to the lottery, Missler elected to receive his payment as a one-time lump sum, which amounted to just over US$280 million. This win comes just a few years after another Florida winner split a sizeable haul with a winner from Maryland.
