Bid to stop 'evil' Italian lotto

A consumer rights group in Italy has launched a legal battle to seize the record prize money in the country's national lottery.

They say it has led to an unhealthy betting fever. Nobody has picked the winning numbers for months and the jackpot has now reached one hundred and twenty five million dollars.

Another chance to win the top prize came and went on Tuesday.

Vanessa Heaney reports.
