Jackpot keeps on growing at Ace of Hearts

LAPEER — The Lapeer Elks’ progressive jackpot game the Ace of Hearts is taking place every Monday night at Louie’s Sports Tavern in Lapeer, and the excitement and jackpot keep growing.

Tickets for the game are on sale through the Elks Club and at Louie’s Sports Tavern until 8 p.m. each Monday. 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.

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 one playing card from 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.
