Limerick couple hope to secure children's future after claiming €1m Lotto jackpot

A lottery victor hit the jackpot last week in Jamaica, and the person showed up to claim the winnings wearing a Scream mask in an attempt to protect his identity.

Aside from the "Scream" mask, made popular in 1996, the man was only identified as A. Campbell, and also wore a full coat, long trousers, and gloves to hide his identity. The person arrived at the lotto centre wearing the mask from the 1996 horror flick, along with a pair of black rubber gloves.

With a cool $1.66 million ($158.4 million Jamaican) in his back pocket, the victor, who claimed the lucky lotto numbers came to him in a dream, said his first goal would be to buy a house, overseas media reported.

"I found out (I won) the same night (as buying the ticket)", he told the Jamaican Star newspaper.

"I looked at my ticket 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". "I don't beg, I don't borrow". I like to handle money.




He said he plans to start looking for a nice house to buy and expand his business with his winnings.

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

Campbell told the Jamaica Star that he was initially overwhelmed.

Gail Abrahams, the vice-president of marketing communication and sponsorship at Supreme Ventures Limited, the company behind the Super Lotto, told the Jamaican Star many winners chose to don disguises to claim their prize.

He claimed he'd fallen ill after his win, sometimes finding himself in so much pain he'd forgotten his life-changing victory. Several years ago in the United States, a California man covered his face with the enormous cheque and, last year, a woman in New Hampshire fought in court to keep her identity a secret - and won.
