SELKIRK WOMAN WINS $108K ‘CHASE THE ACE’ LOTTERY admin June 04, 2018 Leave a Comment A Selkirk, Man. woman was $108,000 richer this July after winning a 50-50 style lottery over the weekend that she plans to split four ways. “It’s still really unbelievable,” said Heather Moar. “I’m still trying to absorb it and soak it all in. The shock is still there.” Moar won the popular Chase the Ace draw at the Riverton Motor Inn in Riverton, Man., about 125 kilometres north of Winnipeg. The game resembles a standard 50-50 lottery: players purchase tickets and bar employees do a draw every Saturday night. The lucky ticket-holder is invited to draw one of 52 cards, and if they draw the ace of spades they take home the pot. If they don’t pull the ace, the prize is held over until the next week when another draw takes place. There were just three cards left to draw when Moar’s ticket was called.
