A victor of the Super Lotto in Jamaica wore a mask form the 1996 horror movie "Scream" to pick up his grand prize last week.

One man in Jamaica was the lucky victor of the country's Super Lotto and went to great lengths to keep his identity secret when showing up to claim his prize in a full-on Scream suit made famous in the 1996 thriller, CBS reports. "I won!'" he told the newspaper last month.

"Sometimes I feel so much pain, I forgot that I had won", he said. "[Wondering] if what I've been longing for really come true", Campbell said.

Back in June, another Super Lotto victor chose to wear an emoji mask to protect her identity after she won $180,900,000 in Jamaican money.

Campbell said his winning numbers - 10, 14, 16, 25, 27 and super ball 5 - came to him in a dream.

Campbell claimed the $158,400,000 prize - which equals almost $1.2 million in USA currency - without ever showing his face.

She was said to have been driving a white SUV but details of her physical description are "unknown". The baby was wearing one-piece flannel pajamas and was cold but otherwise healthy, deputies said.

"I want to get a nice house".

Previous lottery winners in Jamaica have worn animal masks or emoji masks. "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he said. In June, a woman who won $180,900,000 in Jamaican money wore a winking emoji face mask to hide who she was.

She noted: "People have been coming with their own disguises".

She added: "I started buying Super Lotto in January..."

Wes Craven's "Scream" is one of the most successful horror film franchises in history after the first movie was released in 1996.
