Insider Winners

If you’re claiming a prize of $10,000 and over and fall within OLG's Related Party/Insider Win definition, the claim process will take additional time to complete.

If there are no issues with your prize claim, and your prize is approved for payment, a Prize Centre Representative will inform you of your prize payout date. The payment of each Insider prize is held for 30 days from the date the insider news release is published to allow anyone with concerns regarding the prize to come forward.

On the prize payout date, your cheque will be forwarded to a select Slots & Casinos facility for pickup, or you can pick it up at the OLG Prize Centre. The cheque will be issued in your legal name as shown on Government issued identification presented at the time of prize claim.
