'Monkey King' scoops 177 million yuan on lottery

A man wearing a mask of the famous Chinese legendary character Monkey King appears before reporters after scooping 176.9 million yuan ($27.3 million) on the lottery in Chongqing municipality, Southwest China on July 5, 2011. The winner is believed to be around 30 years old, but didn't want to reveal his true identity as he collected the check at a local sports lottery center. He said he was nervous all day after winning, could not sleep or eat well as he was worried he might lose the winning ticket. He donated five million yuan ($772,831) to charity on the spot and answered reporters' questions for five minutes before swinging by the bank to cash his check. Money King is the main character in the classical Chinese epic novel Journey to the West. [Photo/CFP]
