Maybe it has, and we just don't know yet. Personally, I'm far more concerned about the lottery rigging the randomizer verses a player seeking an easy payday.
For example, a lottery may be tempted to rig a digit number game (pick 3, pick 4, etc) to prevent all the same digit from coming up. While such games already have capped liability, there's no cap over multiple draws. That is to say, a lottery assumes over-sized payouts will be far and between; not a common occurrence...
Long-term, not an issue, but short-term there could be a run of high liability hits costing a lottery a bundle - making the profit reports look bad, and hence, a strong motivation to rig the randomizer. To date, I'm not aware of any well known lottery rigging their randomizers, but some have experienced bizarre problems (ignoring some digits; favoring others - search the forums here for more details), so it's not outside the realm of possibility.
