Queen of Hearts Drawing
C-U Queen of Hearts Makes a Comeback at Bunny’s Tavern & The Esquire Lounge. Have you heard about C-U Queen of Hearts? Maybe you had the chance to play when DSC launched the game at the Esquire Lounge in Champaign, before the pandemic.
C-U Queen of Hearts is an easy way to add some serious cash to your pocket and give back to DSC! The Queen of Hearts is a progressive raffle game of chance where a successful player wins a portion of the money held in the Jackpot.
The game begins with $5,000 in the Jackpot and players buy tickets for $1 each. Tickets can be purchased at the restaurant throughout the week.
Then, one ticket will be drawn every Monday at 6 p.m at Bunny’s (Esquire Lounge TBD). The owner of the chosen ticket will have the opportunity to draw the Queen of Hearts from a deck of playing cards and win the Jackpot. You do not need to be present to win, but you won’t want to miss your chance – Every Jackpot win is split 50/50 between the winning player and DSC, if the winner is present at the drawing, and 60/40 to DSC/winner, if the winner is not present.
If the Queen of Hearts is not drawn, the pot rolls over and the Jackpot increases. Each week begins a new chance, as all previous week tickets will be destroyed. Keep an eye on the C-U Queen of Hearts Facebook page, and other communications for more details about tickets and the weekly drawings!
