Every Tuesday evening, there is a new drawing for the Queen of Hearts. See below for details.
This is a weekly progressive raffle. You participate by buying a ticket at the bar. The tickets are a $1 each. You can buy as many tickets as you like. The ticket(s) will be drawn every Tuesday evening. If your ticket is drawn, you can choose a card on the board. The amount of money you win depends on the card you chose.
If you choose:
· Any 2, 3, 4, or 5, you win $5
· Any 6, 7, 8, or 9, you win $10
· Any 10, Jack, or King you win $20
· Any Ace, you win $30
· Any Joker, you win $40
· Any Queen, (except the heart) you win $50
The ticket holder who selects the Queen of Hearts is the Grand Winner and is paid 60% of the pot!
The first week, we will draw 3 tickets. In the following weeks we will draw 1 ticket. You do not need to be present to win. If you are not present, a game administrator will choose a card for you. Be sure to put your name and phone number on your ticket so that we may contact you. If the game proceeds to week 26, we will again draw 3 tickets. Then resume drawing 1 ticket a week until the Queen of Hearts is found. Remember that there is a new drawing every week. This means that after the drawing, the non-winning tickets are thrown away. As the weeks go by, the pot grows bigger and bigger. Also, there will be less and less cards to choose from which increases the odds of finding the Queen of Hearts.
It is a requirement that the IRS form 1099 be given to any winner receiving an award in excess of $600. Recent New York State regulations limit the maximum amount that can be awarded from a particular Queen of Hearts Game to $300,000.
