25 Years Prison for Intelligent Lottery Fraud

Eddie Tipton was a trustworthy computer programmer of Multi-State Lottery Association. He secretly installed offbeat software in Multi-State Lottery computers. These computers would randomly pick numbers for some of the most popular lottery games in the United States. And, wrong picks would allow him to collect money from jackpots in multiple states.

Eddie was a respected employee throughout his employment which was a decade long. Due to his professionalism, work dedication, and willingness to deliver, he was promoted to head information security four years back. He was protecting lottery computer systems where he had been cheating. The programmer started building a 4,800-square-foot house with a movie theatre and gym on 22 acres after hitting the first ill-gotten jackpot in 2005. He then scooped more than $2 million from six more lottery games across five states. Moreover, the computer programmer pleaded guilty in June 2015.

“The depth of his deceit is dumbfounding,” Assistant Iowa Attorney, General Rob Sand, said in the court. According to him, such crimes cannot be answered without a prison sentence. However, he agreed to give the details of his subordinates and the changes they did.
