Boulder man who unwittingly split a $4.8M jackpot with scam artists is fighting the Colorado Lottery in court

In 2005, three people won a Colorado Lotto jackpot worth $4.8 million, and Boulder’s Amir Massihzadeh held one set of winning numbers. He accepted his prize of $568,990 — after splitting the pot and paying taxes — and moved on with life. Ten years later, Colorado Bureau of Investigation agents visited Massihzadeh to interview him about his winning number because they were investigating a criminal scheme to rig lotteries.
