Iowa Hot Lotto fraud case: Tommy Tipton, sibling of former lottery security director Eddie Tipton, has become also accused of being part of a criminal community that claimed at the very least six rigged jackpots in five split states.
Tommy Tipton, 51, a former justice of the peace and reserve officer from Flatonia, Texas, was arrested for his 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.

Eddie Tipton ended up being 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.
