Catch the Ace | How it Works
About Catch the Ace
Catch the Ace is a progressive jackpot, multiple-draw, weekly raffle in which ticket holders have the chance to win a weekly prize and the Catch the Ace Jackpot if the Ace is drawn.
All proceeds go directly to the respective charities to support programs and services for kids with disabilities.
Tickets are available online only and only to Ontario residents: $10 for 3, $20 for 10 and $50 for 50.
- Sales deadline is 4:00 p.m. each Friday; there is no limit to the number of tickets sold for each draw.
- With each ticket order, buyers select an envelope they believe contains the hidden Ace of Spades.
- At the beginning of the raffle, 52 playing cards are hidden in envelopes.
- Weekly ticket sales are split into three portions
- 20% for the Weekly Prize – to each weekly draw winner
- 30% for the Progressive Catch the Ace Jackpot – to the weekly winner whose envelope reveals the Ace of Spades
- 50% to Variety Ontario and Holland Bloorview
- Tickets are valid for each weekly draw only and are removed before the next weekly draw commences.
- Early Bird draw is conducted at 12:00 noon each Tuesday, where one winner will be randomly selected to win the Early Bird Prize of that week.
- The Weekly Draw is conducted at 4:00pm each Friday, when one winner is selected to take home the Weekly Prize (20% of weekly ticket sales)
- One ticket is drawn – determining the Weekly Prize winner
- Ace of Spades - If the Weekly Prize winner’s envelope contains the Ace of Spades, they also win the Catch the Ace Progressive Jackpot – 30% of ticket sales from all weekly draws – and the raffle is concluded.
- Any Other Card - If the Weekly Prize winner’s envelope contains any card other than the Ace of Spades – the envelope and card are eliminated from future selection. 30% of weekly ticket sales is added to the Catch the Ace Progressive Jackpot and sales begin for the next weekly draw.
- Draw results are posted to www.cta4kids.ca at 6:30 p.m. the same evening.
- Weekly draws continue – as above – until the Ace of Spades is caught.
