KINGSTON, Jamaica (WTHR) — A Jamaican man is now much richer after winning the Super Lotto jackpot.

The man collected the check for $158.4 million Jamaican dollars disguised in the mask and robe from the movie Scream. That equivalent to more than $1 million in U.S. currency.

He identified himself as A. Campbell.


His winnings equal about $1,171,424 in U.S. currency.


Campbell, who took 54 days to collect his winnings, said he fell ill after he found out he won.

"I looked at my ticket and ran into my bathroom and said, 'I won! I won!' From the day I found out that I won, I've been sick," he told St. Lucia News.

He described his life as a struggle and said he hopes his winnings will change that.

"I want to get a house, I want to get a nice house," he said. "I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon."
