Tony Bitonti, a spokesman for the OLG, however, told CBCs Metro Morning on Tuesday that people can reduce the likelihood of a dispute by conscientiously changing the rules of their lottery group.

In 2005, four employees of an A&W on assignment, B.C., went to court for a controversial $14.5 million note purchased by another group of nine employees. The latter each received 1.1 million $US from the Lottery and the rest was sent to court for conciliation.

The Play Captain Group must sign the ticket immediately after purchase. Write “In Trust” through the signature line to indicate that this is a group game ticket.
“Have open communication with the group leader,” Bitonti said. Register group participation – You can use the online tool or the Lottery Group Play paper form. “There`s always a winning ticket for $50 million, which is indisputable,” he said. .
