One man doesn't want anyone to know he's a new millionaire.
He won the Super Lotto in Jamaica and wore a mask, from the horror movie "Scream" to claim his $158.4 million check ($1.17 million US) prize.
The man, who simply identified himself as A. Campbell, waited 54 days to claim the ticket.
Lottery winners wearing masks to claim their prize has become a trend. Past Jamaican Super Lotto winners have worn emoji and animal masks.
