Not so much. That's why one lottery victor in Jamaica made a decision to hide his identity by wearing a Ghostface mask from the Scream movie series while collecting his cheque, giving social media some hilarious pics in the process.

Identified only as A Campbell, the victor of Jamaica's JM$158.4 million Super Lotto arrived at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston looking like he was more ready for a Halloween party than anything else.

Campbell reportedly wore a full coat, long trousers, and gloves to hide his identity.

Campbell claimed the $158,400,000 prize - which equals almost $1.2 million in US currency - without ever showing his face.

The masked man claimed his prize from lottery service, Supreme Ventures.

China Protests Over Turkey's Criticism of 'Re-Education Camps' for Uyghurs
Turkish media claimed he was tortured to death in a so-called re-education camp in China's Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region. So far few Muslim-majority countries have joined in public global condemnation of the allegations.

After the winning numbers were selected, it took Campbell 54 days to claim his winnings.

Campbell told the Jamaica Star that after he won in November, he felt sick for days "because I was thinking so much". "Sometimes I feel so much pain I forgot that I won". [Wondering] if what I've been longing for really come true. I won!' " he told the newspaper last month.

The victor also told Loop that the winning numbers came to him in a dream, and the first thing he will do with the cash is buy a house.

If you won the lottery, the first thing people would most likely want to know is what you'd spend your winnings on (jetpack, corgi and a butler, in case you're interested).

While the masked victor didn't reveal much personal information, he did say he was going to invest the money in a house, according to Loop.
