Scarborough resident one step closer to collecting lottery prize
Prize Claim Subject to Insider Win Process
TORONTO, April 15, 2014 /CNW/ - NILESHKUMAR PATEL of SCARBOROUGH is one step closer to claiming his lottery win of $100,000.00 from INSTANT BLACK PEARLS (GAME #1751).
As Nileshkumar worked 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 May 15, 2014 based on this 30-day wait period.
The ticket was purchased at Daisy Mart on Tuxedo Court in Scarborough.
