Dressed in a mask of "Ghostface" - a character in the "Scream" movies with a signature white face and long, wide-opened mouth - the victor, only identified as A. Campbell, collected his winnings of roughly $158,400,000 in Jamaican dollars, which equates to over $1,171,400 in U.S. dollars.

Identified only as A Campbell, the lottery victor won 158 million Jamaican dollars - or approximately 1.1 million USD - as part of Supreme Venture's Super Lotto. Along with wearing the mask, the person reportedly wore gloves, a long coat, and trousers to hide their identity.

Donning a white ghostly mask made popular by the film, the victor, identified only as A. Campbell, arrived at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston to pick up his giant check, Inside Edition reports. "I looked at my ticket (that night) and ran into my bathroom and said: 'I won!"

"I want to get a house. I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon", he said.
