Please Note: An Ontario Health Card may not be an acceptable form of identification at all locations offering on-site prize claim services. If you have questions about whether or not your chosen form of identification will be accepted, please contact the site in advance of making your claim.
If you choose to provide an Ontario Health Card for identification purposes, do not submit a copy of an Ontario Health Card without completely blacking/blocking out the health number prior to copying and sending to the OLG. Where photocopies of government issued identification (i.e. Driver's Licence) are submitted for identification purposes, this information will be securely destroyed after verification of your identification has been completed.
