Mastermind of massive lottery fraud faces up to 25 years in prison
For a decade, computer programmer Eddie Tipton reliably showed up for work at the central Iowa office of the Multi-State Lottery Association and earned the confidence of his co-workers, a team of technicians entrusted to build computers used to randomly pick numbers for some of the most popular lottery games in the U.S.

Little did they know that while they worked to uphold the integrity of lotteries, Tipton had secretly installed software that allowed him to pick winning numbers and was collecting money from jackpots in multiple states.

"The depth of his deceit is dumbfounding," Assistant Iowa Attorney General Rob Sand said in court filings seeking a 25-year prison term for Tipton when he is sentenced Tuesday in Des Moines. "Such crimes cannot be answered without a prison sentence." ...

Gambling is a bad bet-
In this SHORT! message Dr. Brown defines gambling, explains the three elements of gambling, reveals the different types of gambling and gives 5 biblical reasons a Christian should not gamble
Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Jeremiah 17:11 As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
Pr13:11"Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase."

One thing you CAN bet on is crooks gaming the odds.

Tipton was caught after buying a winning ticket for a Hot Lotto ticket in Iowa in December 2010, even though he was prohibited from playing the lottery. He asked Rhodes to help him collect the jackpot, which was worth $14 million after taxes. Rhodes recruited others to attempt to anonymously redeem the ticket, but Iowa won't pay jackpots without proof of who bought the ticket — a policy Sand credits with uncovering Tipton's multi-state lottery rigging scheme.

Stowers alleges that Rhodes stole money from his client, that people who haven't been charged stole numbers from Tipton's brother to win the Colorado Lotto, and that Tipton never received any of the Oklahoma winnings. He said the lotteries have refused to pursue those who received the money. He also called sentences for Rhodes and Tommy Tipton "a slap on the wrist" compared with what Sandis seeking for Eddie Tipton.

"Defendant has clearly been left holding all the financial liability while the parties with the money are largely walking away untouched and unscathed with the states lifting not a single finger to recover the monies they received," Stowers wrote.

Sand said a lengthy prison sentence for Tipton would serve as a deterrent to anyone else who might be considering such crimes

It's good that a white collar criminal finally gets a decent prison sentence.
