The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. prize centre is remaining closed, even as businesses begin Phase One of the province’s reopening plan. But that doesn’t mean some prize winners are going without their loot. OLG’s Toronto prize centre, on Dundas St. W. near Yonge St., shut its doors in mid-March and stopped the claim process for prizes above $50,000. The steps required to maintain prize integrity and ensure the prize is paid to the right person include face-to-face interviews with claimants and authentication of original documents — steps made difficult due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
