No big winner as Morris Queen of Hearts pot hits $1.3M

There was no big winner again Monday at the Morris VFW's Queen of Hearts drawing.

The pot for next week's drawing will be $1,310,202.

On Monday, the three of diamonds was drawn for $50.

The winner of the lottery to draw a card was announced as Angie Spellman.

If the winner draws the queen of hearts, it pays 70 percent of the full pot. The other queens and jokers pay 5 percent of the pot. If the pot reaches $1.5 million, the VFW will halt ticket sales and hold a draw-down regardless of what week it reaches that number.

There now have been 15 cards drawn out of the 54-card deck.

Tickets only will be on sale from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, from noon to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and from noon to 5 p.m. on the Monday drawing days. The cost of a ticket is $5.
