Mastermind of massive lottery fraud faces up to 25 years in prison
  • Eddie Tipton, a computer programmer at the Multi-State Lottery Association, secretly installed software that allowed him to pick winning numbers and was collecting money from jackpots in multiple states.
  • No one seemed to suspect anything: Tipton was such a trusted employee that he was promoted in 2013 to head information security, placing him in charge of protecting the lottery computer systems he had been cheating.
  • He now faces up to 25 years in prison — a hefty sentence — as prosecutors seek to make an example of his case to deter others.
