Colorado Lottery Winner Sues For Millions Over Rigged Jackpot

Back in 2005 Amir Massihzadeh hit the lottery in Colorado and is now suing for the rest of the money he feels should be his.

Massihzadeh had to split the $4.8 million jackpot with two others but it has since been revealed the other two were part of a rigged conspiracy.

Apparently it all stems from the “ultimate 20th century inside job” involving the former Multi-State Lottery Association information security director Eddie Tipton.

Tipton is serving 25 years in prison and has agreed to pay back the rest of the money he swindled; however, Massihzadeh feels he is entitled to some of that cash!

Massihzadeh is suing for the $800,000 prize he won to be tripled, so he could receive the other two-thirds of the total prize he won, as well as 12 years of interest all coming to about $4 million total!

It’s not looking all-too promising for our friend Amir but good luck bud! Get that money!
