However, the ALS Society reserves the right to exit the Chase the Ace Contest upon approval of Service Nova Scotia, Alcohol, Gaming, Fuel & Tobacco Division, Licensing and Registration in the following situations:
- Whereby continuing the contest has grown to a point where public safety considerations cannot be reasonably addressed (parking, security, etc).
- Whereby continuing the contest has grown to a point that exceeds the resources of the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia (human and/or technical).
- Whereby continuing the contest would result in a loss of funding to the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
If one of the above mentioned situations arise the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia will:
- Temporarily halt the contest for two weeks to fully advise the public of the end of the contest and how the draw will be forced.
- On the final draw date, tickets will be available at the ALS Society of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia’s office at 900 Windmill Road, Unit 113, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia’s office from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
- Tickets will be available at the draw venue from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
- At 7:45 p.m. and at 15 minute intervals after that, draws will take place until the Chase the Ace card is drawn. Should the 15 minute draw winners not find the Ace, a consolation prize will be given; the amount determined by 25% of the Jackpot available.
Example: If the jackpot is $20,000; 25% of the jackpot = $5,000. If there are 10 draw winners, each draw winner would receive $500; leaving $15,000 for the Grand Prize Winner drawing the Ace of Spades.
- The remaining 75% of the jackpot will be awarded to the draw winner, drawing the Ace of Spades.
