Catch The Ace

How it Works & the Rules

What is Catch the Ace?

A “Catch the Ace” progressive (accumulating jackpot) raffle lottery is a multiple draw game in which participants purchase tickets for a chance to win:

  • A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of tickets from one draw and;
  • The draw winner also gets a chance to win a progressive (cumulative) jackpot by selecting from the remaining numbered envelopes available. There are a total of 52 envelopes, each with 1 card from a standard deck of 52 playing cards. If the numbered envelope selected contains the Ace of Spades, in addition to winning a percentage of the proceeds from the draw, the person will win the progressive jackpot.

If the card selected is not the Ace of Spades, the selected card is removed from the deck and the progressive prize portion of the ticket sales for that draw is rolled over into the progressive jackpot for the next scheduled draw.

The licensee conducts the scheduled events until the Ace of Spades has been selected and the progressive jackpot has been awarded.

Tickets are valid only for the draw they are purchased for. Once the draw is complete, the non-winning tickets are removed from the draw container and a new series of tickets will be sold for the next draw.


Prize Breakdown

20% of event ticket sales awarded to the bearer of the winning ticket at each draw.
30% of event ticket sales allocated to the progressive jackpot.
50% of event ticket sales will go to benefit the Saugeen Memorial Hospital CT Scanner Campaign.
