Catch the Ace Lottery is a Progressive Lottery.
Each week tickets are sold for the opportunity to select the Ace of Spades from a deck of 52 regular playing cards. Prior to the draw, each of the 52 playing cards were placed in envelopes and numbered 1 to 52.
When tickets are purchased, the buyer chooses an envelope number from a list of available numbers, then enters the number on their ticket.
Each week one ticket is drawn. The holder of that ticket automatically wins 20% of that week’s sales. The envelope number on the ticket is opened. If the card inside is not the Ace of Spades the card is destroyed and is no longer available for future draws. If the envelope selected is the Ace of Spades, then the lottery is finished and the ticket holder wins the weekly prize plus the progressive amount.
Each week the progressive amount grows by 30% of the weekly sales.
Each week the winner of the draw receives 20% of the weekly sales.
