      While focusing on the "criminal", let's not forget that the RNG system is flawed, which is what made this rigging possible, and tempted Tipton to exploit it.....and it's still flawed, no matter how many yrs they gave him...

            .

            OK, so is this finally the last I have to read about Eddie Tipton?

            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                       (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
            • Oh, but always know where your tickets are, as well as your ticket's deadline.

              I feel sorry for the players who might have shared a jackpot with Tipton or one of his cohorts. THEY GOT ROBBED. You know that the lottery bosses are very greedy when it comes to free money, right? As for Tipton himself, he is soft and plumpy and BUBBA will be glad to meet him. GOOD RIDDANCE!!!.

                Eddie,

                Enjoy you stay at the Graybar hotel and thanks for proving that RNG games should not be trusted.

                        What gets me is why don't these criminals who steal millions flee to a non-extradition country? Everyone gets caught eventually. Just run as soon as you have enough to retire on. Plenty of very nice non-extradition countries offer economic citizenship.

                        Not at all.  I used to work armored car for one of the atm companies.  Someone stole $39 million and tried fleeing to Mexico.  Here's another tip off.  If someone had a corvette or something expensive lets say then the company knows something is up. 

                         

                        People don't think.

                          "Tipton has agreed to pay about $2.2 million in restitution, including $1.1 million to the Colorado lottery, $644,000 to the Oklahoma lottery, $391,000 to the Wisconsin lottery and $30,000 to the Kansas lottery.

                          When Judge Brad McCall asked him on Tuesday how he intended to repay the money, Tipton said, "Initially, I really don't know.""

                           

                          He will get the money from the other 47 times he got by with it they still haven't found out about yet probably.

                          And how often would he have got by with this if it were ball drawn? maybe once.....

                          Computers should only be used to print your tickets. NOTHING ELSE......PERIOD!!!

                            Greed causes things like this to happen.
