Oshawa ‘Insider’ has extra-long wait for $100,000 KENO win


Published March 2, 2023 at 11:52 am

It’s been a month since the draw and it’ll be another month before he can claim his winnings but the prize – a $100,000 OLG windfall – is well worth the wait for an Oshawa man.

Stephen Fulton won $100,004 on the February 5 Daily KENO draw but as his wife works for the Alcohol and Gaming Commission his win falls under the OLG definition of an ‘Insider Win’ and is subjected to enhanced review and validation. There is also a 30-day publication period prior to ensure there are no additional claims on the winning ticket.

It is OLG’s goal to ensure that the right prize is paid to the right person(s) every time and the prize will be paid to Fulton April 2, pending no additional claims prior to that date.

The ticket was purchased on OLG.ca.
