After reading about the man going to trial in Indiana for rigging the scratch off, I paused to wonder why is he the only one getting caught? Scientific games actually knew where the winning tickets where. The tickests have serial numbers and are tracked. The following taken from the news article I read in the News section. "
How it happened
A trucker called in and said he thought he had a winning ticket in the $2 million game but had lost it. He also couldn't remember at which of about 40 stores he might have bought it. The lottery's security director told a lottery investigator to look into the claims.
That investigator obtained locations of the winning tickets from the lottery's ticket maker, Scientific Games, to see whether any of the stores the trucker listed had had the winning ticket. The trucker wasn't a winner. But Foreman allegedly gained access to the locations of winning tickets and told Adkins and Foltz where to find one."
In Texas, Scientific Games sends the scratch off games to Gtech who has a warehouse and distributes the tickets to the vendors.. Do you believe that between the printer and distributor no illegal information isn't passed on?
