Lottery winner wears Scream mask

(Meredith) -- A lottery winner in Jamaica apparently wanted to conceal his identity, so he showed up to claim his prize while wearing a mask from the iconic "Scream" movies. 

The man, who was only identified as A. Campbell, collected his winnings on Feb. 5. He won roughly $158.4 million in Jamaican dollars, which equates to over $1.1 million in U.S. currency. 

According to the Jamaica Star, Campbell hit the Super Lotto jackpot on Nov. 23 but waited 54 days before claiming his prize. 

The lottery company, Supreme Ventures Ltd, shared a video and photos on Twitter of Campbell celebrating his big win while wearing the horror movie mask.

"This is that happiness only a #SuperMillionaire knows about," one caption read.

Campbell said he plans to buy a "nice house" with the money, according to the Star.
