Ace of Hearts jackpot grows
LAPEER — The Lapeer Elks’ progressive jackpot game, the Ace of Hearts, is still going on every Monday night at Louie’s Sports Tavern in Lapeer — and the jackpot just keeps growing.
Tickets for the game are on sale through the Elks club and at Louie’s Sports Tavern until 8 p.m. Monday night. The game gives local residents a chance to win a growing jackpot while simultaneously helping the local community by raising funds for the Lapeer Elks.
The jackpot on Monday was $11,616, and will be even closer to $15,000 this Monday.
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.
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.
