Queen of Hearts Drawing

Every Thursday @ Scaffidi's Restaurant & Tavern - Steubenville, OH

More Details & Entire Rules of the Game

What is a Queen of Hearts Drawing? 

About The Game
  • The Queen of Hearts Drawing is considered a Game of Chance and is allowed to be operated in the State of Ohio. 

  • The Game is based on a Queen of Hearts Board with 54 numbers, with each number corresponding to a random card within a standard deck of cards, Jokers included. Within our operation, NO ONE knows the location of the winning card (Queen of Hearts card). 

  • Each week, individuals will purchase tickets for a chance to reveal a slot on the board. Tickets are only good for the next drawing and tickets are discarded after the drawing each week. You must provide your name, phone number, and the number of the slot on the Game Board that you wish to reveal. (The numbers remaining are updated each week and numbers on the Board that have already been revealed cannot be chosen again.)

  • The prize of the game continually grows each week and 100% of the monies that are collected from individuals purchasing tickets that week is added to the prize pot. The establishment operating the game DOES NOT keep any monies associated with the purchase of the tickets. 

  • The person whose ticket is drawn from the tickets purchased that week will be the only person that has a chance to reveal a spot on the board. Based on the number that they selected on their ticket, that slot will be revealed. 

  • If the spot contains the Queen of Hearts card, that individual has won and will win the monies in accordance with the rules of the game. If the spot contains any other card, that individual will win a small cash prize in accordance with the rules of the game and the drawing starts over for the following week, continually until such time that the Queen of Hearts card is revealed on the board.
