Russell Catch the Ace lottery paused until Feb. 28

RUSSELL — The Kin Club of Russell has announced that Catch the Ace is suspended due to the latest provincial COVID-19 stay-at-home order. It’s second time the pandemic has compelled a pause for the same game since March.

But organizers say it will be back as soon as safe to do so — hopefully on February 28th!

There are now 15 envelopes left and the jackpot is more than $180,000. The next weekly win will be more than $10,000. To date, the Kin Club of Russell has raised $250,000 to give back to local charities, including the WDMH Foundation and others.

Both online and paper tickets sales are still permitted, but no pickup or delivery of paper tickets is allowed. All tickets that have been purchased since last Sunday, and those purchased between now and February 28th, will be valid for the next draw on February 28th.

“This is a very exciting event and taking this short break will help to keep everyone safe,” notes Cindy Ault Peters, Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation Manager of Direct Mail and Events. “We want to thank the Kin Club of Russell and everyone who is trying to Catch the Ace. The excitement will continue as soon as it is safe to do so!”
