Queen of Hearts Final Draw

The May 29th 2024 Queen of Hearts Final Draw was a blast! We had over 20 winners before the Queen of Hearts was found. The pot started at $4,210.00. We sold 1401 tickets in a week!!! The Joker was found around the 15th drawing so we reset the board and continued drawing. Envelope #40 held the Queen of Hearts. Because of all the consolation prizes, the jackpot dwindled to $3,350.00! 

New Game Coming in August
