Support the Hospice Society of Camrose and District and Camrose Boys and Girls Club - buy your tickets today! 

How does the Camrose Chase the Ace draw work?
Individuals purchase ticket(s) for the opportunity to win 20% of the total money raised through 14 days of the sale of Chase the Ace tickets and a chance at winning the Chase the Ace Progressive Jackpot.
One winner is selected from the ticket numbers sold each 14 days and wins a guaranteed 20% of that two-week ticket sales proceeds. That winner also has the opportunity to draw the ACE OF SPADES from a standard deck of cards to win the entire Cumulative Progressive Jackpot.
If NO ACE OF SPADES is drawn, the Cumulative Progressive Jackpot carries over to the next biweekly draw. The card drawn does not return to the deck.
If the ACE OF SPADES is drawn, the event ends, a new lottery license will begin with the Cumulative Progressive Jackpot resetting to $0.
