CATCH THE KING PROGRESSIVE JACKPOT PRIZE

  • Only weekly winners qualify to choose a number from the Catch the King board for a chance at the Catch the King Progressive Jackpot Prize.

  • The weekly cash prize winner will have the chance to choose a numbered card from a board of sealed cards representing a standard deck of 52 playing cards plus 2 jokers for a total of 54 numbered cards looking for the King of Diamonds. If the King of Diamonds is drawn, the weekly winner also wins the 30% Catch the King Progressive Jackpot Prize.

  • The weekly winner MUST contact Alaska Lottery at 907-565-6886 or in person at 1436 E Tudor Road, Anchorage AK 99507 by the deadline of 9:00 pm local Alaska time on the day the drawing.

  • Alaska lottery officials will call the phone number associated with the winning ticket immediately following the drawing and will continue to attempt to contact the ticket holder by calling at least every 15 minutes, with the final attempt at 9:00 pm.  If the weekly winner fails to claim their chance to select a card on the Catch the King Progressive Jackpot board, the weekly prize winner irrevocably forgoes their chance at the Catch the King Progressive Jackpot Prize. The winning weekly ticket holder is still guaranteed the WEEKLY prize as long as they contact Alaska Lottery by the deadline, 5:00 pm local Alaska time the following Thursday.

  • If the weekly winner fails to claim their chance to select a card on the Catch the King Progressive Jackpot board, a card will be selected by proxy. Alaska Lottery officials will randomly select a bingo ball from a set of 54 bingo balls, numbered 1 – 54, that represent the numbered windows on the Progressive Jackpot board. The numbered ball selected will determine the window that will be revealed if it is still available. If the window has already been revealed as a previous week’s selection, the weekly prize winner irrevocably forgoes their chance at the Catch the King Progressive Jackpot Prize. The winning weekly ticket holder is still guaranteed the WEEKLY prize if they contact Alaska Lottery by the deadline, 5:00 pm local Alaska time the following Thursday. If the card revealed by proxy is the King of Diamonds, the winner will receive 10% of the accumulated Progressive Jackpot prize. A new raffle will begin with a new Catch the King board and the remaining 90% of the Progressive Jackpot prize as the starting amount. Proxy winners must still contact us by the following Thursday, 5:00 pm local Alaska time to claim their winnings. For illustrative purposes if the progressive jackpot was $500,000, the winner by proxy that selects the King of Diamonds would receive $50,000 and the next round of Catch the King would start at $450,000.

  • If the numbered card does not contain the designated winning card, the King of Diamonds, the card will remain open to show that it has already been selected and the jackpot will continue to progress to the next week, and each week thereafter, until the King of Diamonds is selected.

  • Once the King of Diamonds has been revealed it will end the progressive raffle and a new raffle will immediately go into effect. All prizes will be reset to their minimums and a new board will go into play.

  • The minimum Jackpot Prize is guaranteed at $10,000.00.
