CHASE THE ACE

Cape Breton Post - - FRONT PAGE -

How it’s played:

• In Week 1, the game starts with 52 cards in the deck. • Raf­fle-style tick­ets are sold for a des­ig­nated pe­riod (two or three hours) at the same time each week. • The win­ner of each draw claims a per­cent­age (usu­ally around 20 per cent) of that week’s ticket sales. • About 30 per cent goes to­ward the jack­pot and the re­main­ing 50 per cent is split be­tween the host­ing es­tab­lish­ment and a char­ity. • The win­ner must be present to col­lect, oth­er­wise a new ticket is drawn. • If any card other than the ace of spades is drawn, it is re­moved from the deck and the jack­pot moves on to the fol­low­ing week along with the smaller deck. • If the ace of spades is picked by the draw win­ner, then the jack­pot has been won and a new game will start the next week.
