SELKIRK STEELERS “CHASE THE ACE LOTTERY”
The Selkirk Steelers have been approved by Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba to conduct a multi-location “Chase the Ace” lottery. Scheduled “Chase The Ace” events will take place at all remaining Steeler Home Games starting December 20th 2016, as well as at Roxi’s, 219 Manitoba Ave. (Tuesday evenings, except when the Steelers have a home game scheduled ), and Thursday Bingos conducted at Selkirk Friendship Centre.
According to Steelers Director of Business Operations, Don Gilman:
“The wildly popular “Chase the Ace” fundraiser is part 50-50 draw and part luck of the cards.
The premise of the fundraiser is simple. Participants buy tickets and are entered in a draw. Organizers select one ticket from the pool, and the winner automatically gets 20 per cent of the money that’s been raised at that event. Meanwhile, 50 per cent of the money raised at that event goes to the organization, and the remaining 30 per cent is added to the building jackpot. In addition to winning 20 per cent of the money, the winning-ticket holder is invited to draw a card from a standard 52-card deck. If they draw the ace of spades, they win the accumulated jackpot. If the drawn card is not the Ace of Spades, it remains removed from the deck for the upcoming events.”
The Jackpot will start out at $500.00 and accumulate until The Ace of Spades is drawn.
Rules and Event Schedule will be posted on www.selkirksteelers.com shortly.
