      What kind of Software allows you to alter lottery tickets in the first place ???

      None. you either cut and paste a real one, or you print up a fake one. Either method will fail - the whys and hows have been covered on other threads.

      In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
      Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

              The sheer stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me! It's one thing to alter the numbers so they appear to match, but never mind the barcode which must match as a winning ticket with the lottery's computer? Good Luck trying to duplicate that small detail! lol Green laugh

                Counterfeiting lottery tickets is pretty much impossible! There is no way to duplicate a winning ticket except for a winning ticket! You can't even take a ticket which for instance won a lesser prize then alter it by making the numbers appear to match because the barcode will only match the lesser prize no matter what! So if anyone is stupid enough to try counterfeiting a lottery ticket you will end up in the same sad situation the subject of this story is in! Smash

                    In theory you could counterfeit any winning ticket. All you have to do is get the right paper and ink, and do a good job of printing the right information on it. Of course that last part is going to be a bit hard to do without some inside information. Simply guessing at the information and coming up right is probably a lot less likely than correctly guessing the right numbers.
