Campbell reportedly took 54 days to claim the ticket, and Supreme Ventures had been urging the victor to step forward before the 90-day deadline passed, Caribbean news publication, Loop reports.

The Super Lotto victor, who was identified only as A. Campbell, made a memorable appearance last week at the Spanish Court Hotel in Kingston to collect his prize, worth more than 158 million Jamaican dollars; but it took him 54 days to muster up the courage to do it, according to Supreme Ventures, which operates the game in the Caribbean.

He was identified only as A. Cambell, winning the lottery almost two months ago.

"Sometimes I feel so much pain, I forgot that I had won", he said.

He reportedly said the winning numbers came to him in a dream. My head hurt me for three days because I was thinking so much - if what I've been longing for really come true.

It had taken 54 days for Campbell to claim his ticket, causing the Super Lotto parent company, Supreme Ventures Limited, to put out ads urging the victor not let the 90-day deadline to claim winnings expire.

Tyler Heep hit the $1 jackpot earlier this month and instead of getting another ticket or putting that George Washington towards a cup of coffee, he chose to head over to Iowa Lottery headquarters and asked to be treated like he hit the big one.

Campbell, according to the Jamaica Star, became sick when he found out he won the Super Lotto in November, after buying a ticket for $1.48. The owners of the Super Lotto even put out advertisements urging the victor to claim the prize before reaching the 90-day deadline.

"I want to get a nice house".
