CLEVELAND - A new Queen Of Hearts drawing at the Grayton Road Tavern will be held this Wednesday, May 23th.
According to WTAM 1100's Ken Robinson, a steady stream of folks have been walking into the Harry Buffalo at Great Northern, an overflow purchase location, to buy their tickets.
This will be the first drawing to be held since Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine gave his opinion that the game was legal as the tavern pays out everything it takes in.
In a comment on the Tavern's website, Grayton Road owner James Page says:
"We would like to thank Attorney General Mike DeWine for his well-reasoned opinion..."
We would also like to thank the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley for agreeing to approach this issue in a collaborative manner.
Lastly, we would like to thank our customers for their patience while this matter proceeded through the legal system."
This weeks drawing will have an estimated $500,000 payout for picking the queen, as well as payouts for other cards.
