So the only proof they have is that he bought six winning tickets in different states.  Maybe he's just very lucky.  LOL

Is buying winning numbers a crime? Even if you do it several times or often.

    I've read a few stories about this and maybe somewhat cursory.  However I've yet to see any mention of how MUSL intends to compensate those who may have been stiffed as a result of the fraud.  They should at least refund the monies received for the tainted draws, assuming you can prove you bought a ticket.  Has this been addressed in any way?

    If there was no crime, they don't have to refund.

      So What Time Will Tipton Actually Serve If Any?

      Tipton needs to sue them for having been wrongfully convicted.

        Again... If he entered that room with a pocket full of ping pong balls no one would have noticed?  LOL!  I rest my case.  If he scammed the scamers, more power to him.

        Considering how (un)professional their security and investigative departments have shown themselves to be, i wouldn't be surprised if no one would bat an eye at Tipton putting ping pong balls into the machine.

          > "The team's extensive review did not locate 'proof' of 'fraud or any other wrongdoing' such as 'manipulation' or 'prohibited play,'" according to the four-page report

          That does seem to cover any of the things he was accused of. I hope they didn't hurt themselves when they rushed down to the courthouse to have his conviction set aside.

            I have a prediction on this case.  A jury will throw out Tiptons conviction for lack of evidence.  The lottery will be forced to pay him those jackpots and he will also sue the lottery for wrongful prosecution.  This guy could end up being the Robinsons neighbor.  LOL

              Did he buy the ticket or not? If he did: He wouldn't be able to collect it as he was forbidden from playing at the time. If he didn't: He wouldn't be able to collect it as it wasn't him who got it. The wrongful conviction lawsuit is possible, but not the jackpot.

                This guy is a slimeball and makes the lottery look bad.  I hope he gets sentenced 25 years to life.

                  Hey Moto... Every time you turn around someone hacks or screws with computers.  Who's making the lottery look bad?   The people moving mechanical balls to computers or the hackers?  Personally, I hope he gets away with it.  Teach them a lesson.  Will they learn?  Nope.

                    https://www.lotterypost.com/news/302131

                    The earlier story says they found tampered code and were able to duplicate the draw results. Now they can't find evidence?

                    What am I missing? 

                    This current "investigation" sounds more like a whitewash to protect MUSL's reputation.

                      Tipton could go work for IGT (International Gaming Technology); the Kentucky lottery where you can buy tickets on line is DOWN AGAIN.  He could fix this mess once and for all!!

                      IGT said we're having problems with the KY Lottery and to try again this afternoon.
