Iowa lottery winner requests big check for $1 winning ticket… you read that right… $1

Local News

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.
