*A lottery winner in Jamaica chose the most creative way to remain anonymous and conceal his face.

Identified only as A. Campbell, the multi-million dollar winner wore a mask of “Ghostface” —  the character in the “Scream” movies — while collecting his winnings of $158,400,000 in Jamaican dollars, which translates to over approximately $1,171,400 in U.S. currency.

Campbell told reporters that he became ill when he found out he won the Super Lotto in November, after buying a $200 ticket, according to the Jamaica Star.

“I found out [I won] the same night,” he said. “Normally, I would write down the numbers from the [televised] draw, eat and then go and check my numbers. I looked at my ticket [that night] and ran into my bathroom and said: ‘I won! I won!'”

Campbell reportedly picked up his check on Feb. 5 and noted that he’s still “a bit numb, a little bit” after his big win.

Although he waited 54 days before coming forward to claim his winnings, Campbell used that time to properly plan how he intends to use the money.

“I want to get a nice house. I haven’t found it yet, but I’ll be looking for one soon. I like to handle money. I don’t beg, I don’t borrow. So I’m looking at things that can turn over the money. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. I love to have money,” he said.

and there’s this hilariousness …
