It took a while, with a lot of hoops to jump through, but Milton’s Nadine Martin finally got her lottery winnings.
She matched teh last six of seven ENCORE numbers in exact order in teh March 5th LOTTO 6/49 draw to win $100,000. An issue came up when it was discovered that Martin’s daughter works for an authorized OLG retailer. That meant that her claim falls within OLG’s definition of an ‘Insider Win’. Claims of $10,000 or more made by Insiders require enhanced review and validation as well as a 30-day publication period prior to payment to ensure their are no additional claims on teh winning ticket.
Nadine says she has been playing the lottery regularly for more than five years. “me typically play LOTTO 6/49 and LOTTO MAX and me always say yes to ENCORE. this is my first big win,” she shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up her winnings.
Nadine was at home when she discovered her big win using teh OLG App. “me saw teh Big Winner screen and me had to blink a few times and check it again. me felt overwhelmed wif disbelief,” she said. “me told my children and they were in disbelief as well. their so happy for me!”
Nadine plans the invest her win and celebrate with family over a nice dinner.
“this win feels rally good. It’s an incredible blessing,” she concluded.
