Jamaican Lotto Winner Claims $1.2 Million Prize In Scream Mask

Cheque in hand! A. Campbell won the lottery in Jamaica but wanted his identity kept secret

Cheque in hand! A. Campbell won the lottery in Jamaica but wanted his identity kept secret

Campbell was the 17th victor of the Super Lotto from Jamaica. Not an inch of Mr. Campbell was exposed - donned in a full coat, long trousers and gloves in an effort to completely hide his identity.

A Jamaican man found a loophole in rules pertaining to winning a big lottery jackpot.

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 past year.

"My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much, [wondering] if what I've been longing for really came true".

Last month, a man in Iowa won $1 on a scratch ticket and drove all the way down to lottery headquarters and insisted on being paid out with a massive novelty cheque.

‘Crank Yankers’ Revived at Comedy Central With Jimmy Kimmel Producing
No, this news didn't come from 1998, it was announced yesterday at the Television Critics Association's winter tour. It premiered in 2002 on Comedy Central and moved to MTV2 on February 9, 2007, running through March 30, 2007.

In Campbell's own telling, he picked his winning numbers (10, 14, 16, 25, 27, and super ball 5) from a dream that he had.

Campbell, according to the Jamaica Star, became sick when he found out he won the Super Lotto in November, after buying a ticket for $1.48. So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money.

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. "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he said.

"Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets", Clarke-Cooper told the newspaper about the lottery. I want to get a nice house.
