Lottery Winner Accepts Check Wearing Ghost Face Mask From “Scream”


Not sure if the winner’s face matches the mask, but a Lottery winner in the Caribbean picked up his massive check wearing a mask made popular by the 1996 movie “Scream.”

Only identified as A. Campbell, the Jamaican winner posed with his winning at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston last week. Not an inch of Mr. Campbell was exposed — donned in a full coat, long pants and gloves in an effort to completely conceal his identity.

Campbell’s haul amounts to 158,400,000 Jamaican dollars, or about $1,171,424 in U.S. currency.

“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 said.

Scream was a popular slasher film in the 90’s starring Neve Campbell, David Arquette, & Courtney Cox. The film spawned three sequels and a series on MTV.
