In­ver­ness wo­man claims $127,000 Chase the Ace prize

Cape Breton Post - - CAPE BRETON -

MABOU — It came down to the last card.

But af­ter more than a year of slowly build­ing up past the six-fig­ure mark, the Mabou Chase the Ace jack­pot has fi­nally been won.

Mil­lie Odo, from nearby In­ver­ness, took home a cheque for $127,337 af­ter her ticket was picked in the game’s fi­nal draw that was held Satur­day in Mabou. The game, which raised money for Mabou Mi­nor Hockey and the Mabou Arena, was hosted at three venues on Satur­day with ticket sales, bar ser­vice and live en­ter­tain­ment of­fered at the Mabou Hall, the Mabou Fire Hall and the Dal­brae Academy.

While the jack­pot is con­sid­ered large, it pales in com­par­i­son to those of re­cent games in In­ver­ness ($1.77 mil­lion), Syd­ney ($2.9 mil­lion) and North Syd­ney ($1.67 mil­lion).
