A Jamaican woman collected her $180 million lottery winnings in a rather interesting way. 

The woman, only identified as N. Gray, accepted winnings from a May 11 Super Lotto jackpot drawing while wearing a winking emoji mask, Inside Edition reported

To protect her identity and the safety of her family, N. Gray opted for the disguise. She's seen joyously accepting the check in photos shared by Supreme Ventures Ltd on Twitter. 

 

"I am elated, because I was drowning in debt," she told The Gleaner, a news publication in Jamaica. "I started buying Super Lotto in January... Now [that] I've won, I want to clear my debt, invest and I want to do some traveling. I would like to construct a community center for the youths in my community, so they can engage in something productive; somewhere where they can do information technology."
