A man decided to disguise himself as a bear – and he had a good reason for doing so!
A mysterious Chinese man from Shanxi, China, just scored $85 million from the lottery. The win was reported as the 3rd largest lottery jackpot of the Shanxi lottery. This is probably one of the main reasons the man wanted to keep his face and identity hidden when he went to collect his prize wearing a huge yellow bear suit. The cartoon-ish disguise did the trick, because the media still doesn’t know the winner’s name. He stated he spends between $3,200 and $4,900 each year on lottery tickets. He also said he would donate some of the money to charity.
As strange as it may sound, this wasn’t the first case of disguised identity when it comes to huge jackpot winners. According to official reports, another person won a $65 million jackpot earlier this August and disguised themselves as Mickey Mouse before collecting the grand prize.
