What better way to celebrate winning the lottery than by picking up your fat check, in Jamaican dollars, in full Darth Vader cosplay fashion?

That’s exactly what W. Brown did when he went to pick up his $95 million Jamaican dollar winnings, which breaks down to $650,000 US dollars.

“May the Millions be with you! Congrats to our #Lotto winner, W. Brown!!! Brown aka Darth Vader,” Supreme Ventures wrote.

“I don’t regularly buy from that place, I usually purchase my ticket in Old Harbour or Spanish Town, but I was on the road so I just stopped there,” he said, according to the Jamaica Gleaner.

“Life has always been very rough. I come from a poor family, sometimes I couldn’t attend school because my parents didn’t have it, but I told myself that God will help me one day so I can help my family,” he said.

“I wrote down the numbers and saw that I won! I was excited and said mi finally hol’ him now! I then had a shower and went to sleep.”
