AVISTON, Ill. (KMOX) – The small town of Aviston will more than quadruple in size tonight for the Queen of Hearts drawing at the American Legion post.
No one has won the jackpot in 44 weeks, and tonight’s drawing is close to $930,000.
“No one can get in on the drawing anymore because we stooped taking registrations due to safety – personal safety and safety for the customers, due to too many people registered already,” says Dale Rakers, commander at Post 1239.
He says over 9,000 people have already signed up, and the small town can’t host any more people.
The drawing for a chance to choose one of the 10 remaining cards is at 8 p.m.
