OLG Will Fight $50 Million Lawsuit

Officials at Ontario Lottery and Gaming have said they will fight the lawsuit filed by Cambridge resident, Les King.

King is adamant he is the real winner of the $50 million (Canada) Lotto Max prize that was awarded to another player just a few days ago. King hopes the courts will order the OLG to pay him the full $50 million, but he is also suing for an extra $1.3 million as compensation for the pain and suffering the alleged mix-up has caused him.

OLG lawyers maintain King's claims were dealt with fairly, and that he was not the legitimate winner.

"OLG will defend itself vigorously against this lawsuit," said Tony Bitonti (senior manager of media relations).
