Australian lottery monopoly and gambling operator Tatts Group filed a complaint for domain names ozlotto.co and setforlifelottery.org, but also for powerball.org.
Powerball is an American lottery which recently produced the largest jackpot ever in lottery history, paying out almost $1.6 billion to the three winning tickets. The Powerball lottery is
organized by the Multi-State Lottery Association, a non profit organization which is listed as the owner of the domain name powerball.com.
The Tatts complaint is currently active, but no information is available to identify the Australian lottery claims over the powerball domain name.
Other interesting domain disputes in the first quarter of 2016 include Czech lotery SAZKA winning sportka.org from Gibraltar-based lottery betting site Lottoland and Bwin.Party group winning tobwin.com from online sportsbook 1Bet2Bet.
