Durham Region Residents One Step Closer to Collecting Lottery Prize

Prize Claim Subject to Insider Win Process

TORONTO , March 11, 2020 /CNW/ - A group of eight from Durham Region is one step closer to claiming a lottery win of $216,978.30 from the LOTTO MAX draw on January 31, 2020 .

As Donna Bender's son is an employee at an authorized OLG retailer, this prize falls within OLG's definition of an Insider Win.

As of today's date, the claimants have completed the first step of a two-step Insider Win process, which included enhanced scrutiny of the prize claim.

To complete the prize claim, the prize will be held for a 30-day waiting period as part of OLG's Insider Win 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 April 9, 2020 .

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 members of the group are:

Sarah Hely of Bowmanville
Christian Boisvert  of Courtice
Darlene Mugford  of Whitby
Donna Bender  of Pickering
Janet McKnight  of Bowmanville
Sonya Watts  of Oshawa
