Suit: Illinois Lotto Scratch-Offs Rigged
(Belleville, IL) — There’s a new lawsuit that accuses the Illinois Lottery of scamming players by not paying out in big games. Three people and a business filed the suit on Monday in St. Clair County. They say Illinois’ private lottery manager rigged scratch-off games by ending them before all of the big prizes were claimed. A “Chicago Tribune” story detailed the practice and the paper said the lottery didn’t award more than 40-percent of big game prizes between 2011 and 2015.
