Prize Info

25% will be added to the Prize Pool

        50% of the ticket sales for that day will go to the Perth-Andover Recreation Commission which will go towards programming and facilities for our youth. (10% of this total will go back to the community in form of donation).

Process: When the winning ticket is drawn, the holder will then cut the deck / draw from the deck. If the Ace of Spades card is drawn the winner receives the amount in the Prize Pool. If the Ace of Spades card is not drawn the amount carries forward to the next draw. A $1000 prize guarantee will be supplied by the Perth-Andover Recreation if someone cuts the Ace of Spaces before the Jackpot actually builds up to $1000. If the Jackpot builds over $1000 then the guarantee is eliminated and the jackpot will be whatever has accumulated at that time.

For each round a new standard deck of 52 cards will be used, with the Ace of Spades being revealed before the draw. Once a card has been drawn it will be signed by the winning ticket holder. The deck will be secured and locked in the Perth-Andover Recreation Commission Safe. This will continue weekly until the Ace of Spades is drawn.

When the deck is cut the top card of the bottom half (card that is facing down) will be considered the card that has been drawn. When there are 10 cards remaining they will be shuffled and placed face down on a table for the winning ticket holder to draw.

Operational Info The cards will be flipped over / shown to reveal that the Ace of Spades card is in the deck (this will be done after the winner cuts the deck). Once a card is drawn from the deck, it will be destroyed. The deck will be secured – locked up in a safe on site at the Perth-Andover Recreation Department.

The winning number will be announced verbally and displayed visually. The ticket holder will be called and win the monies for that week. If the winning ticket holder cannot be present within 15 minutes to draw from the deck, the Perth-Andover Recreation Commission representative will select someone to draw for the deck for the winning ticket holder. Once the Ace of Spades card is revealed, the game is concluded, and the following week will be a new game.
