What is Catch the Ace?

Catch the Ace is a progressive lottery that is based on participants purchasing tickets on- line for a weekly prize and then having the chance to win the progressive jack pot by getting the Ace of Spades. The Lions Club obtained a licence from Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) to operate this lottery.

 In our on-line version the weekly prize winner and the Ace will be randomly selected by the computer. At any time over the 52-week potential span of the draw, the Ace may be selected and the lottery will come to an end with the winner getting the money in the progressive pot.
