Morris VFW Queen of Hearts jackpot at $1.1M for next week's drawing

MORRIS, Ill. (WLS) -- Excitement is building once again in Morris for the VFW's Queen of Hearts drawing.

The jackpot is at $1.1 million for next week's drawing. One lucky person gets to draw a card each week from the remaining cards of the 54 card deck. The winner gets 70 percent of the full pot.

The drawing will take place next Monday at 6 p.m. Tickets are sold from 6-9 p.m. Tuesday - Friday, from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and from noon to 5 p.m. on Mondays.

Last September, a LaSalle man won a $1.6 million Queen of Hearts jackpot. The raffle took place after temporarily being placed on hold after organizers were told the drawing violated a state law and municipal code. The raffle was able to proceed after the Morris City Council unanimously passed a raffle ordinance.
