Grayton Road Tavern Queen of Hearts returns with $550K jackpot

CLEVELAND-- Grayton Road Tavern's popular Queen of Hearts drawing will make its return on Thursday.

That's when tickets go on sale and the jackpot is starting at $550,361. The first drawing at the Cleveland tavern will be May 9. Tickets are $1.

Last time around, the contest went on for 50 weeks with the jackpot reaching $5.5 million before someone selected the number hiding the queen.

Here’s how the game works: The game starts with a board of 52 cards and two jokers face down with numbers on the back. Each week, the bar selects one ticket from the drum. On the back of the ticket is the person's name and the number they chose. If that card corresponding to the number is flipped over to reveal the queen of hearts, that person gets the cash.
