Lottery winner wears 'Scream' mask to hide identity

He apparently got sick on the day he found out he won the Super Lotto last November 23, 2018 and waited 54 days to come forward.

Decked out in a full-length coat, long trousers, gloves and the mask made famous by the horror movie franchise, he arrived incognito in a bid to hide his identity - a common practice in the Caribbean given the high levels of crime and fears of being hounded for money by family and friends.

The victor, identified only as "A. Campbell" by lottery commission Supreme Ventures, showed up wearing the onscreen murderer's mask, a long grey shirt, and gloves, in a bid to remain anonymous. "I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon". "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he told the Jamaican Star.

"I like to handle money".

Last June, fellow Super Lotto victor N Gray collected her NZ$1.97 million win wearing an winking emoji mask.

Determined to protect his identity, the victor collected his $1.6 million wearing a scream mask. Campbell checked his ticket after the company advertised that the 90-day deadline to claim the ticket was fast approaching.

The victor, known only as "A Campbell", won the Caribbean island nation's Super Lotto in November, after paying just $2 for a ticket.

"I found out (I won) the same night. I love to have money". I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment.

Campbell, the man or woman picked up the cheque in Kingston for $158,400,000 (which equals almost $1.2 million USD) without revealing their identity.

Supreme Ventures runs the lottery in several Caribbean islands.

"My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much", he said.

Winning the lottery may seem like a dream come true, but the fear of getting robbed after that?
