KINGSTON, Jamaica -- One man doesn't want anyone to know he's a new millionaire.

He won the Super Lotto in Jamaica and wore a mask from the horror movie Scream to claim his $158.4 million check ($1.17 million US) prize.

The man, who simply identified himself as A. Campbell, waited 54 days to claim the ticket.

Lottery winners wearing masks to claim their prize has become a trend.

Past Jamaican Super Lotto winners have worn emoji and animal masks.

Those who wear masks fear they will be recognized and harassed on the streets.
