If you've been to a sporting event at any level, you know how a 50/50 works. Half the jackpot every week goes to the winner. The remaining funds, after expenses, go to whichever fair, exhibition, or ag society that you chose to support with your ticket purchase. Non CAFE members (like the Elk Point Ag Society) receive 70 cents from every $2 ticket with 10 cents going to CAFE's industry relief fund.
Here's the thing for the Progressive 50/50; the trick is to play every week! When you purchase a ticket for a number, that number goes into every draw for a full year regardless of how many draws you buy tickets for. This means there's a chance that your number can be drawn at any time during that year! If you don't make a purchase against your ticket and your number is drawn, you're that draw's 'non-winner' and the money gets put back into the pool and carried into the next draw and you walk away with zilch! No one wants that, right?
If you don't play, you can't win! Luckily, purchasing a 50/50 ticket has never been easier! CLICK HERE to purchase tickets!
