  1. Sign their ticket as soon as it purchased at a retail location;
  2. Keep the ticket in a safe and memorable location until draw time;
  3. Check the ticket as soon as the draw is complete; or
  4. Purchase a lottery ticket on OLG.ca and you will be notified by email if your ticket has won a prize.
