Chase The Ace Information

  1. There are six Chase the Ace lotteries beginning on February 4th (first draw is February 10th). These six locations are: SPCA Dartmouth Animal Shelter, SPCA Antigonish Office, SPCA Kings Animal Shelter, SPCA Colchester Animal Shelter, SPCA Yarmouth Animal Shelter and SPCA Cape Breton Animal Shelter.
  2. Each week the public has an opportunity to purchase Chase the Ace tickets at $2.00 each to be entered in a draw. The Nova Scotia SPCA will select one ticket from the pool and the winner automatically receives 20% of the total weekly sales. The ticket winner is then invited to draw a card from a standard 52-card deck. If they choose the Ace of Spades they win the jackpot!
  3. The jackpot increases each week by adding 30% of the week’s total ticket sales. If the chosen card is not the Ace of Spaces, the Nova Scotia SPCA will remove the chosen card from the deck of cards and destroy it. The next Chase the Ace draw will occur the following week using that same deck of cards that continuously gets smaller with each draw.
  4. The weekly winner does not have to attend in order to take part in the Chase the Ace draw. If the weekly winner does not attend, the Nova Scotia SPCA will pick a card on their behalf. This designate will be appointed when either the weekly winner has been notified and has not responded within 15 minutes or the weekly winner is unable to attend the Chase the Ace draw within 15 minutes.

  1. All tickets for the Chase the Ace fundraisers are priced at one ticket for $2.00. Tickets can be purchased through debit, credit and cash at all of our SPCA shelters, offices and thrift stores. Anyone can purchase tickets for Chase the Ace as long as they are 19 years or older and are not a paid Nova Scotia SPCA staff member or immediate family. There is no limit on the number of tickets that can be purchased for each draw.
  2. Once you purchase your ticket make sure you fill in your name and phone number on each ticket. This ensures that we have the most secure process in place and can identify a winner easier. It is the ticket purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that they are properly filled out and put in the bucket for the draw.
  3. Make sure to buy your tickets each week for a greater chance in winning. We will begin selling new tickets on the Sunday following the draw. Each week that the Ace of Spades is not pulled you will have an even better chance of winning because the deck is smaller and there will be a larger jackpot. A great deal for $2 ticket!

Tickets will be available to be sold to the public at all our SPCA shelters, offices and thrift stores during our regular business hours. For a limited time, you can also reserve a ticket online for all six of our draws across the province.

Fill out the online form here between Sunday – Wednesday for the upcoming Saturday draw. The respective region will then process the payment, fill out the tickets on your behalf, and send you a confirmation e-mail with your ticket numbers. *Online reservations are for a limited time only.*

  1. Do I need to be present at the weekly draw in order to be eligible to win Chase the Ace? No! The winner of the weekly ticket draw and jackpot draw does not need to be in attendance to win. If your ticket is drawn that week, you win the 20% of weekly sales if you are present or not for the draw. If you are present, you will continue on to the jackpot draw and pick a card out of the deck. If you pick the Ace of Spades you win the jackpot! If your ticket is drawn that week and you are not present, we will attempt to reach you by telephone within 15 minutes so you can appoint the Nova Scotia SPCA or a present designate to act for you. This person will participate in the jackpot draw and pick a card out of the deck. If they pick the Ace of Spades you will still win the jackpot! If we cannot reach you a Nova Scotia SPCA staff member will participate in the jackpot draw and choose on your behalf. If they pick the Ace of Spades you will win the jackpot!
  2. When does Chase the Ace end? When the Ace of Spades is selected, the winner will receive the full jackpot and that draw will be finished. The Nova Scotia SPCA will restart with a new $1,000 jackpot guarantee within two weeks. We are holding six different Chase the Ace draws for each SPCA Animal Shelter so be sure to follow all of the draws!
  3. How does the $1,000 jackpot guarantee work? We are beginning the draw with a $1,000 jackpot guarantee if someone pulls the Ace of Spades before the jackpot builds up to $1,000. If the jackpot amount builds over $1,000 then the guarantee is eliminated, and the jackpot will be whatever has accumulated at that time.
  4. How are the funds raised being used? All money raised will help fund the Nova Scotia SPCA mission and infrastructure needs in the community.
  5. How are the weekly contribution of sales distributed? 50% of the week’s sales will go that region’s Nova Scotia SPCA Animal Shelter 20% will be awarded to the winning ticket holder 30% will be added to the jackpot that night
  6. I love the Nova Scotia SPCA and would like to donate the winnings back to you! Can I write this instead of my name on the ticket? First of all, thank you for considering this option! However, we would need your legal name on the ticket in order for it to be valid for the draw. If you choose to donate some of the money back to the Nova Scotia SPCA we would love to discuss this with you after the draw!
  7. Is there a limit to the amount of tickets I can purchase each week? There is no limit to the amount of tickets a person can purchase, and it is the ticket purchaser’s responsibility to check their tickets at the point of purchase.
  8. I purchased over 100 tickets for this week’s Chase the Ace draw. Do I have to write my name and phone number on every ticket? All of the tickets have a space to capture the participant’s name and contact information. We ask that ticket purchasers write their name and contact information on each ticket being put into the draw. This ensures that we can identify a winner easier and can contact you to let you know the great news! It is the ticket purchaser’s responsibility to ensure that they are properly filled out and put in the bucket for the draw.
  9. I’m concerned about my tickets and have some questions. Who do I talk to? If there are any ticket discrepancies, errors or concerns they must be brought forward to Taylor Mundy at the SPCA Provincial Office before the end time of sales for the week. She can be reached by e-mail at tmundy@spcans.ca or by phoning 1-844-835-4798 ext 6.
