Man collects AED2.3-million lotto prize in a Darth Vader costume to hide identity


A lotto winner in Jamaica has collected his $650,000 (AED2.3-million) prize wearing a Darth Vader costume to hide his identity. 

The Jamaican man is only identified as W. Brown. According to The Gleaner report, he collected his prize from Di Endz Sports Bar in May Pen, Jamaica. 

“I don’t regularly buy from that place, I usually purchase my ticket in Old Harbour or Spanish Town, but I was on the road so I just stopped there,” he said. 

Brown revealed that for the past two decades, he has been using the same set of numbers in the game for the past two decades and always believed that he’d win one day. 

“Life has always been very rough. I come from a poor family. Sometimes, I couldn’t attend school because my parents didn’t have it, but I told myself that God will help me one day so I can help my family,” he added.
