The man, known only as A. Campbell on his giant check, wore the mask made popular by the 1996 movie "Scream" when he signed for the winning jackpot prize on February 5 in Kingston, Jamaica.

According to St. Lucia News, a man who won $158 million in the Super Lotto, who identified himself as A. Campbell, claimed the jackpot prize while wearing a mask from the movie "Scream" to help hide his identity. "I won!'" he told the newspaper last month.

I looked at my ticket [that night] and ran into my bathroom and said: 'I won!

Campbell said his head hurt and his belly ached for two weeks, wondering if it was true.

Campbell reportedly purchased the ticket for $200 in Jamaican money, and took 54 days to claim the winning ticket.
