TAY TOWNSHIP – A new Catch the Ace Lottery has launched in North Simcoe. The progressive jackpot lottery will run up to 52 weeks, with weekly draws occurring every Tuesday until the Ace of Spades is revealed. 

The first draw takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 2:30 p.m. 

Ticket pricing is as follows: three entries for $5, 10 entries for $10, and 60 entries for $20. 

Catch the Ace has two ways to win: the Weekly Draw Prize, and the Progressive Jackpot.

How to play the game: 

  • The game's objective is to find the Ace of Spades from within randomly numbered cards.
  • Players buy their tickets online and choose the number they believe is hiding the Ace of Spades.
  • The player whose ticket is drawn will receive the weekly draw prize (20% of that week's sales), and the card corresponding to the number they selected will be revealed.
  • If the Ace of Spades is revealed, the ticket holder wins the progressive jackpot (30% of all ticket sales since the start of the game) also.
  • If the number does not reveal the Ace of Spades, the progressive jackpot grows, and the card is removed from the game, thus increasing players' chances at finding the Ace of Spades.

The launch of the lottery comes at a time when its financial support is most needed to help navigate the effects of the pandemic. Net proceeds will be retained by Martyrs’ Shrine and be used to support its religious programmes.

Tickets are only available online at, are only delivered by email, and are only valid for the draw of the week for which they are sold.

To be eligible to play, players must be 18 years of age or older, be physically located within Ontario at the time of purchase, and satisfy the eligibility criteria set in the Rules of Play. Full rules available on the website. 

Lottery License Number: 12216.
