A lottery is a lottery and when you win, it is a cause of celebration.
Tyler Heep from Urbandale, Iowa may not have won big, but that didn’t stop him from feeling like a big winner.
He won one dollar on a lottery scratch-off and decided to celebrate it with the world. So he headed down to lottery headquarters in nearby Des Moines and made a request that his prize be paid on a giant check.
In short he just wanted it like all the biggest jackpot winners.
He wrote on his Facebook account, “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.”
Lottery officials obliged to this one-of-a-kind demand and took out their novelty checkbook to ensure that Tyler got his winnings on one “Giant Check.”
He further told NBC 13 News, ‘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.
‘Sure enough they wrote me the one dollar check and had me hold it up and took the picture.’
So what did our big winner did with his big lottery. Well! he spent on ‘half of a gallon of gas.’
