State Lotteries were Rigged

I sometimes happen upon the most interesting articles on random news feeds, which are not widely reported elsewhere.

Here’s one from Denver Post News – a computer programmer somehow rigged the lottery in five states (Colorado, Iowa, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Kansas) to win $2.2m dollars.  The articles doesn’t provide any more details, however.

Beyond the illicit wins and conviction, the bigger question is what about all those people who bought lottery tickets in these states? Are the states going to refund lottery purchases?  Probably not.

I’ll wager there are more instances that remain undiscovered.
