28th August, 2012 at 02:42:02
A good by-product of recent fraud case
Crooked store clerks who try to defraud winning lottery ticket holders presenting their tickets for checking will soon find their criminal ambitions more difficult to achieve.
Following the recent case of a shop assistant who tried to defraud an elderly couple out of their million pound Euromillions Lottery win
for a rundown on that one), British national lottery operator Camelot has announced that it will be fitting all of its lottery ticket machines in retail stores with audible warning alerts which will sound if a winning number is on the ticket being checked.
The anti-fraud addition to the machines will be rolled out across the Camelot network later this year and could be in place as early as October, a Camelot spokesman said this week.
WeâEURâ„¢ve been developing a short âEURËœwinâEURâ„¢ sound that our terminals will make to let players know when their ticket is a winning one and we will be implementing this across our network of National Lottery terminals this autumn, the spokesman said, recommending that in addition ticket holders should always sign the back of tickets to prevent fraud and prove ownership.
