News In Pictures: Man Wears Mask To Collect Lottery Money So His Family Won't Disturb Him

A Jamaican man turned up to claim his £1million prize wearing a mask from the movie Scream.

According to Distractify, the man, who identified himself as A. Campbell, decided to collect the prize incognito so he wouldn't have to share the money with cash-hungry relatives. 

Mr Campbell waited 54 days to collect his $158.4 million ($1.17 million US) prize from the nation's Super Lotto, after his original win in November last year.

'Normally, I would write down the numbers from the [televised] draw, eat and then go and check my numbers,' he said.
'I looked at my ticket [that night] and ran into my bathroom and said: "I won! I won!''

'I want to get a nice house. I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon. I like to handle money. I don't beg, I don't borrow.

'So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. I love to have money.'
Viral pictures from the event show him shaking hands with lottery executives and receiving an enormous cheque while wearing the mask.   

Lottery winners in the Caribbean country often wear disguises while collecting their prizes due to high levels of crime in the country, and fears that they will be hounded for money by family and friends.
Back in June, another Super Lotto winner decided to wear an emoji mask to protect her identity after she won $180,900,000 in Jamaican money.
