A group of Penn State football fans booed after the Penn State University football team won a record $1.7 billion online lottery Thursday, calling it “a fraud”.
The victory over Michigan, which had won the last three of its three games, was the first in a new era of online lottery-style games that have been gaining popularity since the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in a landmark case in November that the online lottery was a form of money-laundering.
“Fraud” was the phrase used by the group of fans, who booed in unison, after Penn State’s win was announced at 11:19 a.m.
(3:19 p.m.) local time.
“We’re still waiting for the next one,” said one of the group, who didn’t give her name.
“They should just let them go.”
In its ruling, the Supreme Court said that online lottery games like Powerball and the Mega Millions lottery, which are often run by a third party and have long been illegal, were a form or “method of interstate commerce” that violate the Commerce Clause.
The court also said that the laws regulating these games were vague, and that the government has authority over how online gambling is run.
The justices, who announced their decision at the end of a three-day term, have already ruled that online gaming should be legal.
They also ruled in November to allow state and local governments to require a lottery winner to show identification and that states should regulate online gambling to make it more transparent and prevent abuses.

These games have created an economy that is fueled by fraud and abuse, and we need to ensure that these games don’t become a pathway for money laundering, which is a growing and troubling problem.”
The state of New Jersey and Connecticut are the only states in the U .
S. to ban online lottery winners from receiving prize money, according to a new report from the American Gaming Association, an industry trade group.
“The majority of Americans believe that online gambling violates federal law,” the group said in a statement.
“Online gambling is a form for money-transferring and facilitating illegal activities that undermines the integrity of our elections and elections systems.”
