A lottery victor hit the jackpot last week in Jamaica, and the person showed up to claim the winnings wearing a Scream mask in an attempt to protect his identity.

A man in Jamaica who won the Super Lotto showed up to accept his check in what most of us know as the "Scream" mask. The person arrived at the lotto centre wearing the mask from the 1996 horror flick, along with a pair of black rubber gloves.

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, who purchased the ticket in the capital of Kingston, said he found winning numbers, of 10, 14, 16, 25, 27 and the super ball 5, from a dream and purchased the ticket for just over Sh130. "I won!' From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick", he told reporters.

He added: "I had a belly ache for two weeks, sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I had won".

Champions League: PSG win to end Manchester United's unbeaten run under Solskjaer
To make matters worse for Solskjaer, the interim United manager, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard hobbled off with injuries. United has only scored one goal at home in four Champions League games this season, a 1-0 victory over Young Boys.

China Trade Deadline Approaches
The US has imposed tariffs on $250bn (£193bn) worth of Chinese goods, and China has retaliated by imposing duties on $110bn of US products.

It took him 54 days to collect his prize after his numbers were drawn, with lottery officials admitting they were becoming nervous given the 90-day deadline.

The Jamaican man checked his ticket after the company said the deadline to claim the ticket was approaching without a victor coming forward. "I don't beg, I don't borrow", he told the Jamaican Star.

He said he plans to start looking for a nice house to buy and expand his business with his winnings. So I'm looking at things that can turn over the money.

Last June, fellow Super Lotto victor N Gray collected her NZ$1.97 million win wearing an winking emoji mask.

"I like to handle money", he said.
