Since there was no winner last Monday night, the jackpot is now more than $50,000 and quickly growing toward $60,000.

The game, held every Monday at Louie’s Sports Tavern, gives local residents a chance to win a growing jackpot while simultaneously helping the local community.

The Ace of Hearts is held every Monday night at Louie’s, located on Davison Road with the Polar Palace. At 8:30 p.m. every Monday the Elks draw one ticket out of a bowl and that ticket holder has the chance to pick from one playing card in a deck of cards. Whoever finds the Ace of Hearts card immediately wins the jackpot, which grows each week along with ticket sales.

On Monday, the Ace of Hearts was not found and the game continues. The jackpot continues to grow more quickly each week and, according to the Elks, the jackpot this week will be around $55,000.

Tickets cost $1 each and are available at Louie’s and the Lapeer Elks Lodge on East Nepessing St. in downtown Lapeer. Ticket sales end each week at 8 p.m. sharp. Cash prizes are also available for finding other special cards.

For more information about the Lapeer Elks’ Ace of Hearts game, call the Elks Lodge at 810- 664-3216 or Louie’s Sports Tavern at 810-667- 1500.
