There was a winner in week 45 of the Catch the Ace draw at the Hagersville, Ont., Lions Club Thursday night.
The record progressive jackpot of $1.8 million was won by Richard Marshall after winning the $200,000 weekly draw and selecting envelope 51, which had the Ace of Spades.
In all, Marshall, from Nanticoke, Ont., left with just over $2 million.
The not-for-profit fundraiser took in another $1 million through Thursday’s ticket sales.
Over the 45 weeks, the game raised just over $3 million for two organizations splitting the proceeds earmarked for local food banks and the West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation.
Close to $6.1 million in tickets were sold for the game over the 45 weeks.
