My guess is he wouldn't have been caught.  I assume his other accomplices gave him part of their winnings.  His downfall was greed.  His share of the others wasn't enough, he had to go for more.  And he was too greedy to share it with a frontman on the last one so he bought it himself. 

Had he stopped after he had accumulated a few million and called it good, he almost certainly wouldn't have been caught.  If he had shared the last 12 mil ticket with a frontman, he still probably wouldn't have been caught, but who knows?  Greed, greed, greed.

 Criminals should know about Tax Evasion. Another crime they commit because they cannot be honest about where the money came from.

 As for the previous poster in this thread that taxes are too high on lottery winnings. Contact your Congress member and Senator. Vote accordingly.

    The biggest fraud that is perpetrated on the lottery, which should actually be A BIG SCANDAL, is the taxation of lottery wins. I bet nobody in the senate wants to talk about that.

    'They' would never address the fact lottery winners are taxed on a voluntary tax--buying lottery tickets.  Too bad we couldn't follow the lead of other industrialized nations and stop this practice.  The IRS has the most voluminous rules and regulations of any country; over 500 pages last I knew and certainly is much larger now.

      Well we can all thank the Senator and hope that something comes of his inquiry.

        I wish they went back to having people draw the balls live.that's the only way I will believe it is not rigged . Especially in Ohio. I truly feel the lottery is rigged. Same number combination back to back and always one off your w choice of numbers. Too much coincidences
