If the two slips are supposed to say "Winner" and "Loser" then he simply picks either slip. He then insists that they read the leftover slip. If the leftover slip says "Winner", it would imply he lost. If is says "Loser" than he wins.

thats right, if he exposes the fraud he will lose all his money.

if i were him, after i recieved my money i would expose the fraud but if i did that somebody would probably find a way to sue me.

well eating one is the right answer
