Jamaican lottery winner hides behind Scream Mask

13th February 2019 7:45am

Some big lottery winners go to great lengths to conceal their identity — even if they ultimately fail and none more so than the recent winner of $158,400,000 Jamaican dollars who claimed his prize dressed in a mask of "Ghostface."

The winner, only identified as A. Campbell, collected the cheque which equates to over $1,171,400 in U.S. currency disguised as the main villain of the Scream series complete with a rubber Halloween mask to protect their identity.

"I found out I won the same night," he said. "Normally, I would write down the numbers from the televised draw, eat and then go and check my numbers. I looked at my ticket that night and ran into my bathroom and said: 'I won! I won!'"

A. Campbell who won the Super Lotto back in November, after buying a $200 ticket has taken the time to think about spending decisions with a nice house top of the agenda.

"I want to get a nice house. I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon. I like to handle money. I don't beg, I don't borrow," he said. "So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. I love to have money."
