Colorado Lottery

Court rejects Colorado man's claim to full $4.8M lottery jackpot he unwittingly split with scammers

June 21, 2019, 8:39 am ET

Even though Amir Massihzadeh of Boulder, Colorado, was the only legitimate winner of a Colorado Lotto jackpot worth $4.8 million in 2005, he's not eligible to claim the full winnings, the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled in a decision released Thursday.

Massihzadeh, one of three ticket holders to win that jackpot, accepted his prize of $568,990, after taxes. But 10 years later, a criminal investigation exposed a scheme to rig lotteries across state lines, and officials determined the other two winning tickets that shared the same numbers as Massihzadeh's were fraudulent.
