There's lot of ways to act and look like a millionaire — even if you're not. Tyler Heep was not a big winner, but he knew how to class-up his look a little.

After finding some loose change in his car this week Tyler decided to buy some scratch-off lottery tickets from the Iowa Lottery and when one of the tickets turned out to be a $1 winner he knew just what to do.

He headed straight to the Iowa Lottery headquarters and asked for a big check for his $1 prize..and they agreed to give him the millionaire treatment.

"They decided to treat me like a million dollar winner," Tyler said. "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."

The Lottery usually advises to wait for 90 days before making any major purchases but Tyler went straight out and spent all his winnings on...half of a gallon of gas!
