Here’s how the lottery works.
The lottery starts with 52 playing cards individually sealed in manila envelopes numbered 1 through 52. These envelopes are put on display in the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation office. Nobody knows which envelope contains the Ace of Spades – until the lucky winner catches it!
When tickets are purchased supporters will be asked to pre-select an envelope number on their ticket stub. The lucky weekly winner takes home 20% of that week’s ticket revenues and the envelope number selected on the ticket will be opened to reveal a playing card. If the card is not the Ace of Spades, the card will be destroyed and the lottery continues for another week. If the card is the Ace of Spades, the weekly winner also win the progressive jackpot! The progressive jackpot grows each week with 30% of weekly ticket sales revenue being added in.
