One man from Jamaica rocked a Ghostface mask from the hit Hollywood movie "Scream" when he recently collected his check of JMD158.4 million ($1.1 million or P61 million).

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 a year ago.

Jamaican law states that lottery winners have to pick up their winning check in person, in front of cameras, leading to several recent winners donning masks in a bid to keep their identities secret.

Campbell isn't the first Super Lotto victor to protect their identity following their win.

"I found out [I won] the same night", he said.

"I looked at my ticket and ran into my bathroom and said, 'I won!"

Campbell told the newspaper that he knew the deadline to cash out was coming up later in February, but "I just wanted to get myself together before I came forward".

"I like to handle money", he said. "I love to have money". "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he added.

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".

The man won the lottery almost two months ago, but said he was sick and didn't collect the jackpot until now.

Winning the lottery may seem like a dream come true, but the fear of getting robbed after that? Supreme Ventures tweeted photos last week showing him - in costume - collecting his prize, then posing with his giant cheque.

He claimed he'd fallen ill after his win, sometimes finding himself in so much pain he'd forgotten his life-changing victory.
