Winning the lottery is something most people choose to keep secret for the sake of not having every family member, friend or acquaintance knocking at their door. One man in Jamaica was the lucky winner 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. 

Only identified as A. Campbell, the man or woman picked up the cheque in Kingston for $158,400,000 (which equals nearly $1.2 million USD) without revealing their identity. Campbell took 54 days to claim their prize and the Lotto company was reportedly getting nervous since it was inching 90-day deadline.

“My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much. [Wondering] if what I’ve been longing for really come true,” Campbell said. “I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won.”

Campbell purchased the ticket for $200 ($1.49 USD) and according to the publication, Campbell said they plan on investing their money in a house.
