Val Therese Duo Claiming OLG $250,000 Prize

Luck continues to flow in Greater Sudbury, as a Val Therese duo is one step away from claiming a lottery win of $250,000.

Sylvana Hamelin and David Hamelin of Val Therese seem to have struck it big on an Instant Crossword Deluxe ticket purchased at Forget Minimart on Elmview Drive in Hanmer.

Sylvana is employed through an authorized OLG retailer, so the prize falls into OLG’s Insider Win category, requiring enhanced validation. Sylvana did not purchase or validate the ticket at her place of employment.

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 claimants on March 30, 2021.
