Million Dollar Lottery Winner Conceals Her Identity By Wearing An Emoji Mask

Lottery winner wears winking emoji mask so no one can ever bother her for money

To protect her identify, a Jamaican lottery victor just put on a happy face - a big, yellow, emoji face that covered the entire front of her head. In what has become a viral moment, the lottery victor showed up wearing an emoji mask.

If you ever win the lottery, you may want to take a few pointers from the latest Jamaican Super Lotto victor on how to protect your privacy.

Kingston-based gaming and lottery company Supreme Ventures Limited said her mask was chosen by members of the public and was picked from a series of masks including those from hit movies Scream and Ironman.

N Gray, who won 180 million Jamaican dollars as part of the Super Lotto jackpot on May 11, yesterday collected her cheque wearing a brilliant disguise - an emoji mask. "We are not going to tell them not to do that because their safety is of paramount importance to us as well".

It is reported that before she won, Gray was swimming in debt.

"I think Jamaican lottery victor N. Gray anonymously collecting her cheque in an emoji mask might be the best thing I've ever seen", tweeted Hanna.

"I am elated, because I was drowning in debt", she told Jamaican news site The Gleaner. When asked about her plans, she said that she wants to build a community center for the young people in her neighborhood. Now [that] I've won, I want to clear my debt, invest and I want to do some traveling.

Lottery winners around the world have opted to hide their identities as they collect their winnings.

In February this year, the victor of a Dollars 560 million lottery prize in the U.S. went to court to plead that she be allowed to remain anonymous while claiming her prize.
