Imagine winning the lottery, the thrill of your life-changing for the better in a moment’s notice. But with that change comes some serious negatives. The moment you go on television your identity is out there for anyone and everyone to see. First, you have to worry about people around your area that may be looking for a quick buck. Then you have to worry about the family members that are going to hound you for money. There’s nothing wrong with helping family out, but what if it’s family you NEVER see?
This is the case for a guy who won Jamaica’s Super Lotto. He won 158.4 million which is 1.7 million in US currency. With the win came the news that he had to claim his prize. The man waited for 54 days before he claimed the ticket. When he found out he had to be on television in order to claim his prize, he ended up wearing a scream mask and some gloves.
