More of the Rules for Chase the Ace Lottery

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 Cape Freels Heritage Trust Inc. if someone cuts the Ace of Spaces before the Jackpot actually builds. If the Jackpot builds over $1,000 then the guarantee is eliminated and the jackpot will be whatever has accumulated at that time.

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 or placed on a board to be viewed, each week. The deck will be secured until next week. The winning number will be announced verbally and displayed visually. The winning ticket number will be called a minimum of 3 times during a 15 minute time frame. If the winner does not come forward, another ticket is drawn, etc. Once the Ace of Spades card is revealed, the game is concluded. Each week the deck of cards reduces in size from 52, 51, 50 and so on until the ace is drawn.

BannerWhy Chase the Ace

The Cape Freels Heritage Trust Inc was established in 1991 as a community-based, non-profit, entity to protect and celebrate the cultural heritage of the New-Wes-Valley area. The Board of Directors is responsible for the oversight, management, operations and development of cultural tourism heritage properties entrusted to its care.

The restoration and upkeep of these historic properties is costly and the Board is continually searching for ways and means to assist. We’ve decided to launch a 50:50 lottery, Chase the Ace. 50% of the proceeds will go to the lucky winner while the other 50% will go toward the cultural heritage properties and to the Beothic Arena Committee who have partnered with the Cape Freels Heritage Trust Inc. in this Chase the Ace Lottery.
