The lucky victor, who pocketed the giant sum after winning Jamaica's Super Lotto jackpot on May 11, rocked up to her winning press conference on Friday wearing a giant winking emoji mask.

Simone Clarke-Cooper, Supreme Ventures Super Lotto assistant vice-president of group corporate communications, said winners were always concealing their identities in the Caribbean country.

A picture of her wearing a winking face emoji mask at a ceremony by Supreme Ventures (the company which conducted the lottery) to present her with her winnings has now gone viral with over 3,000 "likes" on Twitter with many amused by her get-up and applauding her ingenuity to hide her identity. One thing that sets her apart from most overjoyed winners is her refusal to let her face be seen in public.

Supreme Ventures posted photos from the press conference to Twitter, where they quickly went viral.

"Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets. Gray" won a whopping 180 million Jamaican dollars which converted to naira comes to an eye-watering N504 million. "We are not going to tell them not to do that because their safety is of paramount importance to us as well".

Grey admits she has a deep fear of getting robbed and in an attempt to avoid having this happen, she's gone to great lengths to protect her identity.

Gray won the regional Super Lotto jackpot drawing on May 8th. "I am elated, because I was drowning in debt".

The video of Gray wearing a mask is doing rounds on social media and has reportedly received more than 3,000 likes on Twitter. Gray plans to treat herself with the winnings, but also wants to help the youth in her community.

"I think Jamaican lottery victor N. Gray anonymously collecting her cheque in an emoji mask might be the best thing I've ever seen", tweeted Hanna.
