Man accepts lottery jackpot in 'Scream' mask

Man disguises himself in 'Scream' mask to accept $158.4 million lotto check

A Jamaican man who won $100 million in the lottery had a most unusual way of accepting his prize money: by putting on the mask of the infamous "Ghostface" murder from the Scream movies and TV series to accept his Super Lotto check!

Identified only as A Campbell, the lottery victor won 158 million Jamaican dollars - or approximately 1.1 million USD - as part of Supreme Venture's Super Lotto. Not an inch of Mr. Campbell was exposed - donned in a full coat, long trousers and gloves in an effort to completely hide his identity.

Campbell reportedly purchased the ticket for $200 in Jamaican money, and took 54 days to claim the winning ticket.

Campbell claimed the $158,400,000 prize - which equals almost $1.2 million in US currency - without ever showing his face. My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much - if what I've been longing for really come true.

He said while he's alright, he feels "just a bit numb, a little bit" after his big win. "I won!' From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick", Campbell said.

"Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets", she said.

"They usually don't need our help, and they are usually very creative, perhaps beyond anything that we could think of or imagine, and it has been very effective over the years", she continued.

"I found out [I won] the same night", he said.

He told the Jamaica Star that he plans to buy "a nice house".
