How do I play?
Easy! If you are 18 or over, you may purchase tickets at one of the following locations and then simply wait for the weekly drawing on Friday:
Newkirk Main Street Office
Newkirk Tag Agency
Be sure to write your name & phone number on the back of each ticket purchased!
How much are tickets?
Tickets may be purchased 1 ticket for $5.00 or 5 tickets for $20.00
When is the first drawing?
The first drawing will be held October 30thand will continue weekly thereafter.
How are the jackpots determined?
There are 2 jackpots – weekly and progressive. The weekly jackpot is 20% of the earnings of that week. For example, if $100 of tickets are sold, the weekly jackpot will be $20. The progressive jackpot is accumulated from week to week. As an example, if the Ace of Spades is drawn in Week 1, the amount would be $30. However, if the Ace Spades is not pulled until Week 3, the jackpot amount would be $90, and the Week 3 weekly jackpot would remain at $20 assuming a $100 of tickets were sold each week. The more tickets that are sold, equals more money in the jackpots!
How do I know if I won?
Weekly winners will be drawn Friday mornings – someone from the Newkirk Main Street office will call you if you are that week’s winner.
I am a weekly winner! What do I do now?
Congratulations! Newkirk Main Street will plan to meet you at a ticket sale location no later than 4 pm Friday afternoon. You may send a representative in your place. You will receive the weekly jackpot once your age and identity are verified. You will also have the opportunity to select one playing card from the single deck. The object is to select the Ace of Spades card to win the progressive jackpot. Cards drawn that are not the Ace of Spades will be removed from the deck, so your chances get better each week!
I selected the Ace of Spades! What’s next?
CONGRATULATIONS, you are our winner! In addition to the weekly jackpot, you will also receive the progressive jackpot. This will also be the conclusion of the game.
Do I have to buy new tickets every week?
Yes! Tickets will be destroyed after the Friday morning drawing and a new color for the week will begin.
Where does the money raised go?
Funds raised from the Chase the Ace fundraiser will go towards the Newkirk Main Street Inc. general fund. These funds are used to help preserve and beautify our downtown and bring many events to the community throughout the year!
