Let’s buy some items from Farms.com’s classifieds ads
If you suddenly came into more than $1 million, what kind of ag purchases might you consider?
In Hagersville, Ont. the local Lions Club’s Chase the Ace lottery has a jackpot of about $1.4 million.
For those unfamiliar with Chase the Ace, here’s how it works.
One ticket is $10, or buyers can get three for $20.
The Hagersville Lions Club only sells tickets in-person and on Thursdays from 9am to 7:30pm.
“You put your name and your number on the ticket, and then there’s a circle on the ticket where you write your envelope number,” Tanya Ribbink, a member of the Lions club, told Norfolk Today. “You write down which envelope you think holds the ace of spades.”
The draw takes place at 8pm. The winning ticket automatically wins 20 per cent of the day’s ticket sales.
“Then we open the envelope that they chose. If it’s not the ace of spades, we do it all again the next week,” Ribbink said.
While envisioning winning $1.4 million, head over to Farms.com’s classifieds section to see what money can buy.
