THE GAME

How Chase the Ace Works

A Chase the Ace is very much like a 50/50 raffle.  The raffle still pays out 50% of what it brings in and the charity still keeps 50% of the proceeds, only every week it’s like having a growing seeded jackpot where there may or may not be a winner.  We like to call it a 50/50 raffle on steroids.

Here’s the basics:

  • At the beginning of the raffle 52 cards are hidden in 52 numbered envelopes.  They are hidden in such a way that even the charity doesn’t know which cards are in what numbered envelopes.

Sales

  • Tickets are purchased just like a 50/50, except they are valid only for the current week’s draw.
  • 20% of those ticket purchases go into a weekly prize
  • 30% of those ticket purchases go into the progressive jackpot
  • 50% of those ticket purchases go to the charity

The Draw

  • One ticket is drawn at 6:00pm each Saturday which determines the weekly prize winner
  • In addition the weekly prize, the weekly winner also has the opportunity to select a numbered envelope from 1-52
  • If the envelope contains the Ace of Spades, the weekly winner also wins the progressive jackpot.
  • If the envelope doesn’t contain the Ace of Spades, the raffle continues for another week.  The envelope chosen and the card revealed in the envelope are eliminated from the raffle.

Ticket prices are 1 for $10, 5 for $20, 50 for $25 and 100 for $100

Sales deadline is 5:45 p.m. every Saturday

FAQ

What is Chase the Ace?

Chase the Ace is a weekly raffle with a progressive jackpot element. Ticket holders participate ONLY in the week they purchase tickets. Ticket holders are eligible to win a weekly prize which consists of 20% of the current week’s sales.

Now here’s the Chase the Ace part….

The weekly winner has a chance to pick an envelope numbered 1-52 and if they choose the envelope with the Ace of Spades, they win the progressive jackpot which is 30% of every week’s sales.

If the weekly winner doesn’t choose the Ace…the game plays on…and the jackpot keeps building.

How are the winners chosen?
