“We at SPPCS are making an estimated judgement that the prize will reach - or just exceed - the $2 million mark,” Minier said at the most recent drawing. “Please know that ticket sales will not get cut off before Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m.

“What that means: we’re pulling until we find that Queen. It could happen the first time, it could happen … we have 13, 14 left.”

The final Queen of Hearts drawing of this round will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. just outside Outsider pub, located at 104 S. Market St. in Waterloo. Ticket sales will be open to those who registered before the jackpot reached $1 million last December.

A video of the Jan. 24 drawing is available on the Waterloo Queen of Hearts Facebook page.
