Lottery victor wears Scream mask to collect £1million prize

Kingston - A lottery victor in Jamaica recently claimed his $1.1 million prize, wearing a white cape, black gloves and the mask from the classic slasher film franchise "Scream".

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 a year ago. The person arrived at the lotto centre wearing the mask from the 1996 horror flick, along with a pair of black rubber gloves.

Identified only as A Campbell, the victor of Jamaica's JM$158.4 million Super Lotto arrived at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston looking like he was more ready for a Halloween party than anything else.

Campbell said his winning numbers - 10, 14, 16, 25, 27 and super ball 5 - came to him in a dream.

He claimed he'd fallen ill after his win, sometimes finding himself in so much pain he'd forgotten his life-changing victory.

It may have taken Campbell awhile to collect the prize, but at least it gave him time to think about how he wants to spend it. The owners of the Super Lotto even put out advertisements urging the victor to claim the prize before reaching the 90-day deadline.
