GENERALITIES OF THE GAME

DRAW SELECTION: A single ticket number will be selected each week by a gaming lab certified Random Number Generator (RNG) from all raffle ticket numbers sold during the week leading up to the draw. The draw will be electronically conducted from the CKRM Radio Station located at 1900 Rose Street, Regina SK. S4P 0A9 at approximately 4:30pm and streamed live on Facebook.  Purchasers do not need to be present to win and social distancing practices are encouraged.

WEEKLY WINNER: Each weekly draw winner will receive a single cash prize equal to 20 percent of all ticket sales collected during the week. The winner will be contacted by phone and asked to choose an envelope from the remaining envelopes that contain cards.  The chosen envelope will be opened and revealed.  If after 3 attempts over 15 minutes, the winner hasn’t been contacted, a designated proxy will choose an envelope for the weekly winner.  The designated proxy will be either Derek Taylor or Michael Ball from CKRM Sportscage.

The weekly winner of week 5 will also win an Early Bird prize bonus of $5,000.

PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT WINNER: If the envelope associated with the winning weekly draw ticket reveals the Ace of Spades (including week 1), the weekly draw winner will also receive the Chase the Ace Progressive Jackpot, consisting of 30 percent of all ticket sales collected over all weeks. The Raffle is then concluded.  The progressive jackpot will commence with a guaranteed prize payout of $20,000.  It will be up to the Foundation if they wish to restart the raffle again and whether the raffle if started again will have a guaranteed amount subject to SLGA approval.

 

GAME PLAY OUT:  If the game is not concluded by the end of the licensing period according to the dates of our SLGA license, the game will be played out on the last Friday before license expiration.  RNG draws will be made and envelopes selected until there is a winner.  There will be no sales between these draws and if the 20% prize weekly winner does not choose the ace, only the 30% progressive jackpot will be eligible to be won by subsequent draws.  Each subsequent draw winner will win a $500 gift card from the Rider store.
