$30m Lottery Winner Wears Mascot Costume To Hide Identity From Family

A lottery winner in China pulled off a weird move by wearing a mascot costume to claim his $30.6 million lottery jackpot to keep his wife and children from knowing about the prize.

The man identified only by the pseudonym Li, for obvious reasons, told the Guangxi Welfare Lottery he had been playing the lottery for about 10 years and normally uses the numbers 02-15-19-26-27-29-02.

The man recently spent $11 on 40 tickets bearing his lucky numbers for the same drawing, and each ticket ended up winning $765,000, for a total of about $30.6 million.

Li showed up to collect his prize donning a bright yellow cartoon mascot costume. He said he wanted to keep his jackpot a secret from his family.

“I have not told my wife or children. I am concerned that they might feel superior to other people and will not work or study hard in future,” Li told lottery officials.

Li donated some of his winnings to a lottery fund that supports vulnerable communities in China. He said he does not yet have plans for the rest of the money.
