Seven people who police say were cheated out of a $12.5-million lottery prize in 2003 finally received their money today.
Fall 2020 Princess Margaret Home Lottery Rules & Regulations 16,035 prizes will be awarded, valued at $ 14,490,059.19 (including all taxes and freight). All Princess Margaret winners are notified in writing as to what they have won and how to claim their prize. The winner of the 50/50 Add-On will be posted online at PrincessMargaretLotto.com on either November 26 or December 10, 2020.
The actual winners – who had been told originally that their winning Super 7 ticket was worthless – were given their prize at a news conference held Thursday by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission.
The OLG has promised to pay interest on the original win, which means a total of nearly $15 million, or more than $2.1 million each.
Investigators allege that a father and son working at a Burlington Variety Plus store had stolen the winning lottery ticket from a customer by falsely reporting that it was not a winner.
They also allege that the men used a female family member to improperly claim the prize one year later from the Dec. 26, 2003 draw.

Last September, OPP laid fraud and money laundering charges against brother and sister Kathleen and Kenneth Chung and their father, Jun-Chul Chung.
The Chungs were released on a combined total of $700,000 bail — $500,000 for Kathleen and $100,000 each for her father and brother. They were ordered to surrender their passports and not communicate with each other.
Police seized or froze $10 million in assets from the family, including a $2 million house in Vaughan, a $1.3 million house in Oakville, five luxury cars, jewellery and electronics.
Ironically, neighbours in Vaughan said that house was at one time a prize for the Princess Margaret Hospital lottery.
While the alleged fraud took place seven years ago, the case was cracked last year using a new computer tracking system. Police and lottery officials fielded dozens of calls after news of the fraud from people hoping to claim the prize.
The OLG investigation managed to track the purchase closely enough to learn that a ticket bought at That’s Entertainment on Lake St. in St. Catharines was later turned in at the Variety Plus store in Burlington, where it won a free play.
That free play ticket went on to win $12.5 million with the numbers 6, 8, 14, 25, 36, 41 and 42.
Lottery officials said the alleged fraud was committed before safeguards were introduced after a series of insider fraud cases threatened to destroy the OLG’s credibility.
The case was one of five identified in 2007 by ombud Andre Marin who accused the OLG of turning a blind eye to suspicious insider wins.

When the charges were announced, OLG chairman Paul Godfrey, who was brought in by the Liberal government a year ago to turn the corporation around, was forced repeatedly to defend the lottery system’s integrity.
“Certainly, there were cases which probably should have been prevented years ago. But A, we didn’t have the proper tools to do it and B, we didn’t have the proper mechanisms in place, “ he said, adding that he was putting his faith in a “powerful” computer tool called Data Analysis and Retrieval Technology (DART).
DART can analyze billions of transactions per second and can identify ticket purchase patterns and characteristics, lottery officials said.
For example, an analysis of the defrauded winner showed the customer had favourite locations for lottery purchases with a predominate location. The OLG also knows the customer played Super 7 regularly, as well as other lottery products from time to time.
