The cousin of Iowa Hot Lotto scammer Eddie Tipton has been charged with ongoing unlawful conduct, thanks up to a new forensic breakthrough within the instance.
Iowa Hot Lotto fraud case: Tommy Tipton, sibling of previous lottery security director Eddie Tipton, happens to be also accused of being part of a criminal network that claimed at least six rigged jackpots in five separate states.
Tommy Tipton, 51, a previous justice of the peace and reserve police from Flatonia, Texas, was arrested for their part in claiming fixed jackpots in Colorado and Oklahoma that allegedly netted him $1.2 million. He reportedly handed himself in to police and has since been released on bail.
His sibling Eddie, the previous director of data security at the Multi-State Lottery Corporation, was convicted this past year of rigging the $16.5 million Iowa Hot Lotto draw in 2010.
At his test, prosecutors argued that he’d installed a self-destructing hack program to ensure the random number generator (RNG) used in the draw on December 29, 2010 picked their figures. He also tampered with surveillance digital cameras so his installation of the application could not be detected.
Eddie Tipton was sentenced to ten years in prison last July, and is now awaiting test on charges linking him to phony jackpots in Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Wisconsin.
