Garrettsville Queen of Hearts jackpot climbs to $1.5 million

Organizers took the raffle idea from Barry Dyngles Austintown pub that drew big crowds before a woman won $1.8 million

No winner again Sunday night for the Queen of Hearts game at Skylane Bowling in Garrettsville.

GARRETTSVILLE, Ohio (AP) – Thousands of people are flocking to a rural Ohio village for a bowling alley’s weekly raffle in hopes of becoming an overnight millionaire.

The jackpot at SkyLane Bowling in Garrettsville has climbed to about $1.5 million because no one has won for a year.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports the number of players recently has been several times the population of Garrettsville, roughly 35 miles southeast of Cleveland.

The Queen of Hearts drawing costs $5 per ticket. Players hope to guess which slot on a board of cards holds the namesake card. The eventual winner must attend the drawing to win most of the jackpot. The next drawing is Sunday.
