The Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association’s Chase the Ace raffle will begin in a different way than usual this time around.
The jackpot will start with a base of $10,000.
With the previous fundraiser unexpectedly ending on July 22, which was only the fifth week, the Ex decided to run their raffle for a second time.
A card is drawn from a 52-card deck every week until the ace of hearts is chosen.
If the ace of hearts is not pulled, the jackpot carries over to the next week.
Every week 20% of ticket sales goes to the card winner, 30% is added to the jackpot, and the remaining 50% goes to the Ex.
The new raffle will start on August 19 with the first draw happening on August 26.
Cards will be drawn every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are available for purchase at the Lloyd Ex and on their website.
