The brother of Iowa Hot Lotto scammer Eddie Tipton has been charged with ongoing unlawful conduct, thanks to a new forensic breakthrough within the case.
Iowa Hot Lotto fraud case: Tommy Tipton, brother of former 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 justice that is former of peace and reserve officer from Flatonia, Texas, was arrested for their role 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 former manager of information security at the Multi-State Lottery Corporation, was convicted last year of rigging the $16.5 million Iowa Hot Lotto draw in 2010.
At his test, prosecutors argued that he had set up a hack that is self-destructing to ensure the random number generator (RNG) used into the draw on December 29, 2010 picked their numbers. He also tampered with surveillance cameras so their 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.
