Possible Fraud at National Lottery Investigated

The authority which supervises gaming has started an investigation into possible fraud at the National Lottery.  There are indications from both external sources and from employees of the National Lottery that recent draws have not been done according to the rules.  The results of the draw on King’s Day, for example, showed that more lottery tickets were submitted than were legally issued. A report from the auditing firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers shows that the systems of the lottery are susceptible to fraud.  Four former employees of the Greek company, Intralot, which manages the system, have said that due to the system’s shortcomings, it is possible to manipulate the results.
