A shop assistant from Kent has been jailed for 12 months, suspended for two years - after trying to con a lottery syndicate out of its £79,000 winning ticket.
Imran Pervais, 26, of Milton Road in Gravesend paid out just £10 to the Chatham-based syndicate even though they had matched five balls plus a bonus number.
In March Pervais was convicted of fraud by false representation. In addition to the suspended sentence, he was given a curfew and a 200 hours community service sentence.
