Jamaican lottery winner wears Scream mask to collect million dollar prize

A Jamaican man has just become $158 million richer after taking home the Super Lotto jackpot on Tuesday. 

He wore a white coat, black gloves - and a mask from the movie "Scream."

Jamaica has a history of lottery winners disguising themselves, due to high crime levels and fears of family and friends hounding them for money.

In June, a woman wore an emoji mask to protect her identity after she won the lottery.

The man in the Scream mask, known only as A. Campbell told St Lucia News he was so stressed about his multi-million dollar win, he fell ill.

"From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick," he told St Lucia News "My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much...I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won."

Mr Campbell has big plans for his new found fortune

"I want to get a house; I want to get a nice house. I haven't found it yet but I'll be looking for one soon" he told St Lucia News.

Protecting ones identity after a windfall is a move recommended by financial experts.

"Trying to maintain a low profile and remain anonymous is a great idea after winning the lottery, as it helps maintain a certain level of privacy to ensure you don't have people coming after you for money" financial planner Matt Cosgriff told Insider.
