An Iowa lottery winner didn’t win the jackpot, but he still wanted the millionaire treatment.
Tyler Heep bought a couple of scratch-off tickets with some pocket change and won $1. But, instead of turning it in for cash, he went to the Iowa Lottery Headquarters.
Heep wanted one of the big, ceremonial checks given to lottery winners. After getting a laugh out of the request, Heep says the lottery obliged him.
As for how Heep spent his winnings, he says he bought a half-gallon of gas.
