Jamaican Lottery Winner Wears 'Scream' Mask While Claiming $1.2M Prize

Back in June, another Super Lotto victor made a decision to wear an emoji mask to protect her identity after she won $180,900,000 in Jamaican money.

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.

A lottery victor hit the jackpot last week in Jamaica, and the person showed up to claim the winnings wearing a Scream mask in an attempt to protect his identity.

- A man who won a $1.1 million lottery prize went to pick it up in a "Scream" mask and gloves so no one could tell his true identity. "I won!' From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick", Campbell said.

He said while he's alright, he feels "just a bit numb, a little bit" after his big win.

'So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money.

Previous lottery winners in Jamaica have worn animal masks or emoji masks. "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he said.

The emoji mask-wearing victor, identified only as N. Gray, won $180 million Jamaican dollars and wore the mask "in response to rampant crime in the country", Sky News reported.

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

She added: "I started buying Super Lotto in January... I would like to construct a community center for the youths in my community, so they can engage in something productive-somewhere where they can do information technology". The "Scream" mask is also known as the "Ghostface" mask.
