Prize Claim Subject to Insider Win Process

TORONTOAug. 9, 2018  – Pedro Pereira Da Rocha of Toronto is one step closer to claiming his lottery win of $10,000 from INSTANT X MONEY (Game #2050).

As Pedro’s wife is an employee at an OLG retail location, this prize falls within OLG’s definition of an Insider Win.

As of today’s date, this prize claim has completed the first step of a two-step Insider Wins process, which is an independent investigation of the claim by a third-party working in partnership with OLG’s regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

To complete the prize claim, the prize will be held for a 30-day waiting period as part of OLG’s Insider Wins process, in order for OLG to publicize the win. If there are no additional claims on this prize, it will be paid to the claimant on September 7, 2018 based on this 30-day wait period.

If the pay date falls on a day that is not a business day, then the following business day shall be deemed to be the pay date.

The ticket was purchased at Nova Era Bakery & Pastry Inc on Dundas Street in Toronto.
