UPDATE: OLG PRIZE CENTRE IN-PERSON PRIZE CLAIMS
TORONTO, ON – OLG is now accepting in-person prize claim appointments for prizes of $1,000 or more. Appointments for prizes of this value will be granted if requested, however prizes up to $49,999.90 do not have to be claimed in-person and customers are encouraged to continue to mail in these claims when possible. The mail-in prize limit was increased to allow more customers the opportunity to claim their prizes while still upholding prize integrity.
To best protect customers and staff, measures recommended by public health officials, are in place at the Prize Centre to prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19, including:
- physical distancing;
- increased cleaning of public and shared spaces;
- available hand sanitizing stations; and
- the mandatory use of masks or face coverings by customers.
Additionally, the number of potential claimants allowed inside the Prize Centre at any given time is limited.
Players are reminded that prizes up to $999.90 can be claimed at lottery retail locations, subject to availability of cash on-site. Please visit OLG.ca for more information on Claiming Prizes.
OLG appreciates the patience and understanding from our players as we worked to implement these additional procedures to ensure the safety of our customers and our staff.
