A lottery winner in Jamaica who seemingly wanted to remain anonymous chose quite the mask to conceal his face.Dressed in a mask of “Ghostface” — a character in the “Scream” movies with a signature white face and long, wide-opened mouth — the winner, only identified as A.
Campbell, collected his winnings of roughly $158,400,000 in Jamaican dollars, which equates to over $1,171,400 in US dollars.
Campbell, according to the Jamaica Star, became sick when he found out he won the Super Lotto in November, after buying a ticket for $1.48. “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!’” He reportedly picked up his check on Feb. 5. He said while he’s alright, he feels “just a bit numb, a little bit” after his big win. Campbell appeared to have contemplated how to responsibly handle the money.
“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.” Campbell isn’t the first Super Lotto winner to protect their identity following their win.
In June, a woman who won $180,900,000 in Jamaican money wore a winking emoji face mask to conceal who she was.
