(CLEVELAND) Grayton Road Tavern's popular Queen of Hearts is now in the hands of Ohio King of the Legal System. Attorney General Mike DeWine is looking into whether the drawing is legal. 

The Grayton Road Tavern was set to start its next Queen of Hearts drawing next Wednesday. Owner Jimmy Page issued this statement:

"We are temporarily pausing the Queen of Hearts game while we await an opinion from the State of Ohio Attorney General’s office or a decision from a court regarding the continuation of the game. We appreciate everyone’s patience while this matter progresses through the legal system."

The jackpot was to start at $550,361 with tickets set at $1.. In March, the game culminated after 50 weeks with the jackpot reaching $5.5 million before someone selected the number hiding the queen. 

The Queen of Hearts 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.
