Are my tickets automatically entered in every draw?

The weekly jackpot is reset every week so you need to purchase weekly to be eligible for the current week’s draw and a chance to win the progressive jackpot.


Do overturned cards stay overturned?

Yes, each week the weekly winner’s card is revealed. As more cards are overturned the odds increase of the Ace of Spades being selected to win the progressive jackpot.

Yes, when you select a card you are choosing which card you would reveal if you are the weekly winner.


After 52 Weeks, if there is only one card left, is that weekly winner the winner of the progressive jackpot?
