A Jamaican lottery victor could not stop smiling - and winking - as she bagged just over 180m Jamaican dollars (£1m). In what has become a viral moment, the lottery victor showed up wearing an emoji mask.

The lucky victor, who pocketed the giant sum after winning Jamaica's Super Lotto jackpot on May 11, rocked up to her winning press conference on Friday wearing a giant winking emoji mask. Actually, it was her emoji mask that conveyed the expression.

"Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets".

"In other markets, they don't necessarily do it, but here I think they opt to do it to keep themselves safe".

Gray won the regional Super Lotto jackpot drawing on May 8th. She won $180 million in Jamaican dollars, which is the equivalent of $1 million USD.

Now I've won, I want to clear my debt, invest, and I want to do some travelling.

Lottery winners are usually soft targets for robbers as they usually have their faces plastered everywhere due to the ludicrous amounts they end up winning.

"I would like to construct a community center for the youths in my community, so they can engage in something productive", she said, adding that it could be a place "where they can do information technology".
