  • If the Draw winner selects the envelope containing the Ace of Hearts, they will also win the jackpot (including 40% of the week’s event’s ticket sales).

  • The prize pot grows larger every week.
  • The contest continues with the same deck of cards until the Ace of Hearts is selected.
  • Once the Ace of Hearts is drawn – a new contest begins.
