Event Details:
Confederation Centre of the Arts has announced the first large-scale Chase the Ace lottery in Charlottetown, with a handsome guaranteed jackpot of $2,000.

“Chase the Ace” is a classic card game that has caught fire as a charity fundraiser in the Maritimes over the past year. Huge jackpots have been built in Inverness, Dartmouth, and Tignish.

Chase is Ace is similar to a 50/50 draw, but has a twist: weekly ticket sales are split with 50% going to the fundraising charity, 30% being pooled into the jackpot, and 20% going to the weekly winning ticket holder, who also gets the chance to draw a card from the deck. As weeks go on without the Ace of Hearts being drawn, the jackpot grows and the deck of cards shrinks. The Centre has chosen an Anne of Green Gables themed deck of cards, with the hearts suit as jackpot trigger, hoping for good luck with “hearts for the arts”!

Confederation Centre of the Arts will host its Chase the Ace events on Thursday evenings, either at The Mack Theatre or Memorial Hall. Ticket sales will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:35 p.m., with the draw being held at 8:45 p.m. The first event will be held at The Mack on Thursday, Oct. 15, 2015. Check the website, Facebook or Twitter for up-to-date schedule information.

Proceeds of the lottery will be put towards the $5-million cost of phase two of renovations to the Homburg Theatre.

Tickets are available at $2 each, with discounts based on the number of tickets bought. Full rules and regulations as well as a full ticket price list is available at
