RULES FOR THE QUEEN OF HEARTS RAFFLE (updated)

Queen of Hearts” is a once a week raffle drawing based on a standard deck of playing cards.  We will use a pre-printed game board with 54 “cards” on it. (Standard deck + 2 jokers.)

There will be a new drawing each week until the Queen of Hearts is selected.  All non-winning tickets will be destroyed each week and new tickets will be sold.  Tickets will be priced at $1.00 per ticket, 6 tickets for $5.00 or 26 tickets for $20.00.  Tickets are to have purchasers NAME, TELEPHONE NUMBER and a selection card number for the drawing.  If a number is not on the ticket and the winning participant is not present for the drawing, the next unselected number will be uncovered.  If the winner is present and has not put a selection number on the ticket, he may select his number at the time of the drawing.

The drawing will take place on Thursday evening at 8:00pm.  Tickets will be available at the bar.  It is the purchasers responsibility to write their information on each ticket and place it in the locked box. We will have a designated sales position on the evening of the raffle.

Payouts

Tickets are sold for the raffle just like any other raffle and must be turned in by 7:30pm the night of the raffle.  At 8:00pm the tickets will be mixed and tumbled and a winner will be drawn. That winner picks a numbered card from the board. The number is removed to reveal a card.  The players winnings are determined by the following payouts:

QUEEN OF HEARTS                        60% of proceeds if present at drawing

                                                          40% of proceeds if not present at drawing

ANY JOKER                                     $100.00

ANY ACE                                          $75.00

ANY FACE CARD OTHER

THAN QUEEN OF HEARTS            $50.00

ANY NUMBERED CARD                 $25.00

 

All remaining money from the drawing will be carried over for the pot the next week.

Sales of tickets will end at 7:30 pm on Thursday to give the officials time to calculate the weekly pay out. The starting amount for payout will be posted each week.  Each week the winning ticket will be displayed on the board atop the selected card.

NOTE: Winnings over $600.00 will be reported to the IRS
