On October 25, 2006, CBC`s The Fifth Estate aired an investigative report on lottery sellers winning big prizes that focuses on the ordeal of 82-year-old Bob Edmonds. His $250,000 Encore note was stolen by a supermarket employee when he had his ticket checked in 2001. For the next four years, OLG ignored Edmonds` requests after the employee and her husband were mistakenly named as the rightful winners. Later, when the couple was arrested for fraud, OLG refused to return their winnings on the grounds that it was not their responsibility to have been deceived; In 2004, a judge disagreed and forced OLG to give its money to Edmonds.
They did so on the condition that Edmonds sign a confidentiality agreement so that he would never tell the press the specific details of the event. The Fifth Estate also uncovered OLG`s internal memos in which several employees admitted they believed Edmonds` story. Immediately after the broadcast, Edmonds received a phone call from OLG President Duncan Brown, who apologized and said he was ashamed of the way his staff treated Edmonds. OLG subsequently released Edmonds from the confidentiality agreement. He died on April 2, 2007.

Prizes under $1000 can be picked up directly from a retailer that has a lottery terminal in store.  This is subject to liquidity availability.

When claiming the prize at the OLG Prize Centre, the winner must have valid government-issued identification and a signature. The ticket will be checked in case of fraud. The Fifth Estate report adds that more than 200 lottery retailers in Ontario won major awards from 1999 to 2006.
