KINGSTON, Jamaica – Some lottery winners want to remain anonymous but one person is going viral for taking that to a whole new level.

The winner of the $158.4 million prize (around $1.2 million in U.S. currency) Super Lotto jackpot wore a mask from the 1996 horror movie “Scream” to pick up his grand prize last week, Loop reports.

The winner was only identified as A. Campbell and waited 54 days to claim the ticket.

“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 come true. I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won,” he chuckled.

A bill has been proposed that allows lottery winners in Arkansas to stay anonymous.
