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.

The ghoulish victor picked up a cheque for a whopping $158.4 million in the Super Lotto jackpot, though this sum is considerably less whopping when you convert it from Jamaican dollars to United States dollars ($1.17 million / £907,000).

A Jamaican man who won the country's lottery wore a "Scream" mask to hide his identity in published photos.

It had taken 54 days for Campbell to claim his ticket, causing the Super Lotto parent company, Supreme Ventures Limited, to put out ads urging the victor not let the 90-day deadline to claim winnings expire.

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

Winning the lottery may seem like a dream come true, but the fear of getting robbed after that?

Turkish media claimed he was tortured to death in a so-called re-education camp in China's Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region. On Twitter, Uighurs overseas posted photos of themselves holding up images of their missing parents, children and siblings.

The man won the lottery almost two months ago, but said he was sick and didn't collect the jackpot until now. I haven't found it yet, but I'll be looking for one soon.

"Sure enough they wrote me the one dollar cheque and had me hold it up and took the picture", Heep said.

The emoji mask-wearing victor, identified only as N. Gray, won $180 million Jamaican dollars and wore the mask "in response to rampant crime in the country", Sky News reported.

She noted: "People have been coming with their own disguises".

She added: "I started buying Super Lotto in January..." The "Scream" mask is also known as the "Ghostface" mask.
