A lawsuit has been filed and is seeking class action status against the lottery for allegedly misrepresenting the odds of winning a scratch-off game and the prizes that were available. The lawsuit was filed in Marion Circuit Court in Indianapolis on behalf of all players of lottery scratch-off games. The suit claims Hoosier Lottery misstated the number and amount of prizes available and misled consumers by advertising and making the odds of winning and prizes seem greater than they actually were.
In a statement posted on its Web site, the Hoosier Lottery acknowledged overstating the prizes. It said half of the game's 5 million tickets were potentially defective because a printing error and were replaced, but internal lottery reports did not reflect the changes, resulting in prizes being overstated.

I purchased a $10.00 scratch off Slots of Money. I got two Wild symbols and a foot. The prize is $10,000.00. They claim "Wild" is not "wild". The game does not say this and the rules are not posted on their web site. I feel the game replicates a slot and Wild should be wild and I'm due the money and all others in a similar situation should be paid.
