Wahnapitae's Mireille Roy won $25K for life, but has to go through Insider Win process first

That’s because she works at an authorized OLG retailer, although not the one where she bought her ticket 

Mireille Roy of Wahnapitae won $25,000 a Year for Life with DAILY GRAND on May 7, but she can’t claim her prize right away.

That’s because as Roy is an employee at an authorized OLG retailer, this prize falls within OLG's definition of an Insider Win. She did not purchase or validate the ticket at her place of employment.

As of today's date, the claimant has 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 claimant on Aug. 28.

If the pay date falls on a day that is not a business day, then the following business day shall be deemed to be the pay date.

The ticket was purchased at Coniston Pharmacy on Amanda Street in Coniston.
