Multi-Million Lottery Winner Shows Up In Emoji Mask To Hide Identity

Lottery winner N Gray showed up wearing an emoji mask to collect her winnings.


Winning the lottery must be exhilarating - but the fear of getting robbed after that, not so much. Perhaps that is why when this Jamaican citizen hit a multi-million lottery jackpot, she found the best way to conceal her identity. N Gray, who won 180 million Jamaican dollars as part of the Super Lotto jackpot on May 11, yesterday collected her cheque wearing a brilliant disguise - an emoji mask. *wink wink*
 
Ms Gray has won over 1 million USD thanks to the Super Lotto lottery. A picture of her wearing a winking face mask at a ceremony by Supreme Ventures to present her with her winnings has now gone viral with over 3,000 'likes' on Twitter.
 
And people love it...
 
"I am elated, because I was drowning in debt. I started buying Super Lotto in January... Now I've won, I want to clear my debt, invest, and I want to do some travelling. I would like to construct a community centre for the youths in my community, so they can engage in something productive; somewhere where they can do information technology," said Ms Gray to The Gleaner.

According to the Jamaica Star, Simone Clarke-Cooper, a representative of the company, noted that since Super Lotto started, winners have been wearing disguises to protect themselves.

In February this year, the winner of a USD 560 million lottery prize in the US went to court to plead that she be allowed to remain anonymous while claiming her prize.
