Catch the Ace
Here’s how the lottery works:
The lottery starts with 52 playing cards individually sealed in opaque envelopes numbered 1 through 52. These envelopes are put on display in the Lady Dunn Health Centre Foundation office. Nobody knows which envelope contains the Ace of Spades – until the lucky winner catches it!
When tickets are purchased supporters will be asked to pre-select an envelope number on their ticket stub. The lucky weekly winner takes home 20% of that week’s ticket revenues and the envelope number selected on the ticket will be opened to reveal a playing card. If the card is not the Ace of Spades, the card will be destroyed and the lottery continues for another week. If the card is the Ace of Spades, the weekly winner also wins the progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot grows each week with 30% of weekly ticket sales revenue being added in. If the Ace of Spades is not found by week 20, the first ticket drawn in week 20 will be the weekly winner and take home 20% of that week's ticket revenues. If the Ace of Spades is still not found, we will continue to draw tickets until the Ace of Spades is found! These draw winners will not be awarded the jackpot unless their envelopes reveals the Ace of Spades.
Ticket sales close weekly on Tuesdays at 12 PM.
Live draws happen each Wednesday at 11 AM on the LDHC Foundation Facebook page.
Tickets will return on sale at 12 PM on Wednesdays should the Ace still be hiding!
