Many have had success playing the lottery or winning big time bucks by being a contestant on a game show. However, there is a caveat when it comes to winning the big deal on some game shows.
The ultimate surprise can come when some of the prizes that you have won are given to you as a cash value instead. With that said, once all the pomp and circumstance is over and you are ready to sign your prize sheet, you may find that some of the items you have won are labeled “cash-in-lieu” of an item you have won.
