Jamaican Super Lotto winner wears 'Scream' mask to hide identity

JAMAICA - A Jamaican man who won the Super Lotto in his home country wore a mask to claim his prize to avoid future harrassment.

According to a news agency out of St. Lucia, the man simply indentified as A. Campbell wore the popular mask from the horror film "Scream" when he collected his $158.4 million check ($1.17 million US).

A. Campbell, who waited 54 days to claim the ticket, is not the first winner from Jamaica to go with a mask when collecting his millions. Past Jamaican Super Lotto winners have worn emoji and animal masks.

Those who wear masks fear they will be recognized and harrassed on the streets if they're seen in the news holding up their millions.
