  • What is Catch the King?
    Catch the King is a 50/50 lottery to raise funds for Alaskan charities under Alaska's Charitable Gaming laws. Each week participants may enter the drawing by purchasing ticket(s). One winning ticket is drawn each week and the winner receives 20% of the weekly sales. The weekly winner also then draws a card from a board representing a standard deck of 52 playing cards plus 2 jokers for a total of 54 cards looking for the King of Diamonds. If the King of Diamonds is drawn, the weekly winner also wins the 30% accumulated progressive jackpot. If not, the rest of the cards on the board are kept for the following week’s raffle. Once the King of Diamonds is drawn the game is over.
  • What is the deadline to buy tickets?
    The deadline to buy tickets for the weekly draw is every Sunday at 8:45pm. If Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, or New Year's Eve falls on Sunday, the deadline will be adjusted to the day before those holidays.
