Chase the Ace: How the Game Works
The popular "Chase the Ace" fundraiser is part 50-50 draw and part luck of the cards.
Participants buy one $5 ticket (or more if they wish) and are entered in a draw. Organizers select one ticket from the pool, and the winner automatically gets 20 % of money raised that day. Meanwhile, 50 % of funds go back to our charity and the remaining 30 % is added to the growing Chase the Ace jackpot.
In addition to winning 20 % of proceeds, the winning ticket holder is invited to draw a card from a standard 52 card deck. If they draw the Ace of Spades, they win the jackpot. If they do not draw the Ace of Spades the card drawn is destroyed, leaving one less card in the deck.
The lottery can go on for up to 52 weeks. That means, whoever wins the next ticket draw will have a one in 52 chance or better of taking home the top prize. Odds increase in the drawer’s favor every week the Jackpot is not won.
The winning ticket holder must be present at time of draw and participants must be at least 19 years of age to participate.
