A man who won a lottery turned up in a mask to claim his £1million prize. After giving his name as A. Cambell, wore a mask similar to the one from the movie Scream to claim his winnings. He said he did so so as not to be recognized by money-hungry relatives who would expect him to share the money with them.
Mr Campbell won the lottery in November last year but waited 54 days to collect his $158.4 million ($1.17 million US) prize from the nation’s Super Lotto.
He said after winning the lottery:
Normally, I would write down the numbers from the [televised] draw, eat and then go and check my numbers.
I looked at my ticket [that night] and ran into my bathroom and said: ‘I won! I won!’
I want to get a nice house. I haven’t found it yet, but I’ll be looking for one soon. I like to handle money. I don’t beg, I don’t borrow.
So I’m looking at things that can turn over the money. I have a little business, so I plan to make it bigger, buy an apartment. I love to have money.
