By the time Legion Branch 70 in Iroquois Falls held its weekly Catch the Ace draw last Saturday, the estimated jackpot of $30,000 was actually closer to $33,000.

But the ace of spades wasn’t in the lucky ticket holder’s matching envelope, so the jackpot is even higher for this week’s draw.

Legion president Don Beagan tells My Cochrane Now Dot Com that the estimate is $40,000.

Two-dollar tickets are on sale while they last.  The draw goes live on Facebook at 6:00pm Saturday.
