Jamaican Lottery Winner Claims Cheque In Full Scream Costume

If you won the lottery, the first thing people would most likely want to know is what you'd spend your winnings on (jetpack, corgi and a butler, in case you're interested).

But the second thing people tend to ask when discussing hypothetical lottery wins is whether you would remain anonymous or go public.

Well, one lottery winner in Jamaica has answered that question in the most brilliant way possible, claiming his cheque while wearing the famous mask from slasher horror movie Scream.

In truth, the man - identified only as 'A. Campbell' - went the whole hog, and was kitted out from head to toe in a complete Ghostface outfit... minus the bloody blade, which he quite wisely chose to omit.

The ghoulish winner picked up a cheque for a whopping $158.4 million in the Super Lotto jackpot, though this sum is considerably less whopping when you convert it from Jamaican dollars to US dollars ($1.17 million / £907,000). Still, that's a life-changing amount of money, which probably explains the whole dropped-jaw expression.


A. Campbell didn't claim his winnings for 54 days, leading Super Lotto owners Supreme Ventures to put out ads encouraging the victor to claim their spoils before the 90-day deadline elapsed.

However, while the money is undoubtedly welcome, anonymous Campbell told St Lucia News he has felt unwell ever since he learned of his good fortune.

He said: "I looked at my ticket and ran into my bathroom and said, 'I won! I won!'

"From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick.

"My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much, [wondering] if what I've been longing for really came true. I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won."

Someone please give me a million dollars and an achy belly for a fortnight FFS.

As for the first question every wants to know the answer to, Ghostface is keeping it classic with his spending plans.

He said: "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."

It's hard to begrudge a guy who picks up his winnings in such fashion. Here's hoping he gets the porcelain throne of his dreams for that newfound lottery-winner's dicky tummy.
