When you hit the lottery, you know everyone will be coming after you like a masked murderer in a scary movie. Unless of course, you become that masked murderer!
That’s exactly what one winner of the Super Lotto in Jamaica did as he wore a mask form the 1996 horror movie “Scream” to pick up his grand prize winnings of $1.2 million of last week.
Rocking the scream mask only, the winner, identified only as A. Campbell, arrived at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston to pick up his giant check in a long coat, pants, and gloves according to several reports.
Inside Edition reports that Campbell took 54 days to claim the ticket, and Supreme Ventures, the regulators of the lottery in Jamaica, had been urging the winner to step forward before the 90-day deadline passed.
Campbell said he fell ill after realizing he owned the winning ticket.
“My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much. [Wondering] if what I’ve been longing for really come true,” Campbell said. “I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won.”
Campbell purchased the ticket for $200 in Jamaican money, which amounts to $1.49 in U.S. dollars. While the masked winner didn’t reveal much personal information, he did say he was going to invest the money in a house, according to Loop.
I just feel bad for anyone with the last name Campbell in Jamacia right now!
