    women lost her 50 million OLG ticket but OLG tracks her down

    Woman loses ticket, but OLG tracks her down as $50 million Lotto Max winner

    The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation have announced the winner of a $50 million Lotto Max prize that went unclaimed for a year.

    But for the first time in history, the OLG approached the winner instead of the other way around.

    Through a months-long investigation, the lottery corporation determined Hamilton resident Kathryn Jones was the rightful winner, after searching transaction history and security camera footage from a Shoppers Drug Mart in Cambridge.

    “As you can imagine this has been both a very weird and wonderful journey,” Jones said at a press conference Tuesday morning.

    Since the announcement of the winning ticket on Nov. 30 of last year, 435 people inquired about the prize, but Jones never did.

    A self-described “random” lottery player, Jones admits she lost the ticket and still has no idea where it is.

    “I have obviously, as you can imagine, I have looked in my house very thoroughly and it’s not there.”

    Jones, an engineer, said she has two children in university who are taking the news in stride.

    “My oldest son lectured us on being responsible,” she said. “[He told us,] ‘I don’t care about the money I just want to get through these exams.’”

    Previously, Jones had only won $20 through gaming. She said her family has no plans for the money yet.

    Through the investigation, the OLG determined Jones purchased the only $16 ticket sold at the Shoppers Drug Mart location that day, and her answers were consistent with their questions regarding the purchase.

    The corporation also conducted an independent review after learning Jones’ sister owns a retail outlet in Ottawa that sells lottery tickets.

    “I feel very grateful . . . no one had to take that initiative [to find the winner],” she said.

    As per their policy, the OLG will hold the prize for another 30 days to make sure no one else comes forward, although they are positive Jones is the rightful winner.

    The largest unclaimed prize through the OLG prior to this was $5 million

    That wouldn't last long. While the idea seems like it would work, it really doesn't. Unless of course, you're just barely spending much, and don't have a lot of bills, etc.

    Not at today's interest rates. Especially here in the USA. Low interest rates are killing seniors retirement nest eggs right now.

    Until the market crashes and the tenants can't afford their rent because they lost their jobs. Invest in hard commodities where you can get the actual commodity when you trade in your shares. Start a small business doing what you're good at. Do something that contributes to the PRODUCTIVE capacity of the economy.

    Maybe where you live, but in our city its all government jobs and during the recession, home values continued to move up.

    You need to know where you are before you purchase real estate, but here in Ottawa its done just fine.

    BC is a whole other story.

    I saw the story on CTV days before the 1 year closing date of the win. And I didn't expect anything like this. What I don't get is why OLG would go to all that trouble to FIND the winner and just give $50 million away when they did not have to. Wouldn't the company rather just save all that? This story will not improve their business much so its no-where close to being an advertising strategy. I like this news and its about time someone gets a fair shake but from OLG's perspective, makes no sense.

    I'm just saying man. Invest in hard commodities. Or if you want to make BIG money, try betting against the markets like housing in the derivatives market. These home prices are still artificially inflated. I **** you not.

    Bet on its crash, bet against it. Look well into the matter and there is good money to be made.
