That's a nice trick they had going on.

I don't agree with the bond though.

The bond amount ($250,000) which is 20% more than ($200,000) what they stole.

The bond should have been 5x that amount. ($1,000,000)

    You guys are missing the BIG picture.  These games aren't random and can be manipulated.  The Lottery Agency should have known that in the beginning and if they didn't know that's on them.  If they did know the machines could be manipulated and they still put them into service then the Lottery Agency should be the one going to JAIL.

      I Agree! Rudeboy805.  Anyone can go to the Illinois Lottery Headquarters' website, read about their RNG games and how their is more than one security measure built in ... so no worries! 

      Anyhow, it hurts not to be able to play one's own state Major On-Line Lottery Games because they are RNG, which is unsafe; lately found to be tampered with regularly and more being discovered in several states (why not mine, too).  This is because we know that if each state's Lottery Headquarters, instead, paid for the more expensive ball method -- with 3 rotating salaried and grateful show hosts -- we know that the odds are more in our favor of winning the grand prize!  My state changed to the cheaper RNG for Lotto, etc. ... so I feel unsure during EACH of my much reduced ticket purchases.

        How about we all stop being racist and Zenophobic

         

        There is too much drama and hate in the world already....

         

        We are all human.....no one is infallible.

         

        Tipton is Caucasian.....how are we not calling out all Caucasians as rotten

        Every race, gender, religion, nationality has bad apples

        Let's do better people

        I agree; people are people no matter what.  We are all in this world together.    Besides, the people who run the lotteries are the biggest cheats of all.

          well, if the State knew there was a problem with the game and didn't do anything about it, it would seem that charging

          these individuals with this crime will wind up being reduced..
