Many lodges in the state of Virginia play the Queen of Hearts. The Queen of Hearts was approved the by the state of Virginia for play in our lodges. It is a fun game with sometimes huge pay offs. It is easy to play; you purchase a ticket and pick the number where you think the Queen of Hearts is hiding. If your ticket is drawn to pick, the number you wrote on the back of the ticket is pulled from the board. If we flip the card and it is the Queen of Hearts, you win! If not, it is progressive. The money rolls over into the next drawing.

Note: We try to keep up with all the drawings across the state. Is your lodge not getting updated? Please let us know what is happening in your lodge. You can send us updates directly to Jim Puckett at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or via our Contact Us page under About.
