Brad Slugoski from Flin Flon has won more than $1 million after selecting the Ace of Hearts on Saturday night in The Pas. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 19 started this round of Chase the Ace back on January 7, 2017 with a jackpot of $65,000. As word spread the pot continued to grow at a rapid pace each week. People from all over started lining up early every Saturday for their chance to take home the big money. Eventually, the weekly Chase the Ace draw reached $1,009,870 before Slugoski’s win.
In September of 2016, the Legion also gave away $207,000 in another Chase the Ace pot.
