Man accepts lottery jackpot in 'Scream' mask

Not so much. That's why one lottery victor in Jamaica chose to hide his identity by wearing a Ghostface mask from the Scream movie series while collecting his cheque, giving social media some hilarious pics in the process.

The man - who accepted a cheque made out to "A Campbell", but offered no other indication of his identity - had won a Jamaican lottery with an $158 million prize (£900,000).

Jamaican law states that lottery winners have to pick up their winning check in person, in front of cameras, leading to several recent winners donning masks in a bid to keep their identities secret.

Campbell told the Jamaica Star that after he won in November, he felt sick for days "because I was thinking so much".

Campbell said his winning numbers - 10, 14, 16, 25, 27 and super ball 5 - came to him in a dream. "I won!' From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick". "I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won", he told Loop News.

Carragher had posted on Twitter after the West Ham game, urging supporters to remain calm in the heat of the title race. However, Manchester City is now giving them a tough time as they are just 3-point behind with 62.

It took a nail-biting 54 days for him to come forward and claim the prize which has a 90-day deadline.

Campbell said his life has been "a struggle" but hopes that will change with the winnings.

"I want to get a nice house".

Supreme Ventures Limited, who runs the Super Lotto in the Caribbean islands, posted a photo of the man picking up his massive check on Twitter. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money.
