Shane Missler turned in the winning ticket Friday afternoon at Florida Lottery headquarters in Tallahassee for the fourth-largest prize in Mega Millions history, the Tampa Bay Times reported. And the person holding the ticket is a 20-year-old kid from Florida.

"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", said Missler.
