Iowa Man’s Celebration After Winning the Lottery Makes National News
If you've played scratch tickets, you've no doubt won amounts so small that it was hardly worth your time to drive to cash it in. Tyler Heep, from Urbandale Iowa, found himself in that situation recently. He won one-dollar on a ticket and, instead of taking it to the convenience store to collect his buck, he requested a GIANT check presentation from the Iowa State Lottery Office.
Tyler shared the experience on his Facebook saying, "I told them I'd like one of those big ceremonial checks as payment. I figured it would be worth a shot and they all thought it was really funny. I'm surprised nobody else has done this before. They decided to treat me just like a million dollar winner. The guy came down the stairs and they took me into the back room where the camera was with the Iowa Lottery logo.”
If you're wondering, Tyler spent his winnings on about a half a gallon of gas.
