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 U.S. currency.

THE 'CURSE' OF WINNING THE LOTTERY?

Campbell, according to the Jamaica Star, became sick when he found out he won the Super Lotto in November, after buying a $200 ticket.

“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 "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.
