Bump 50:50 Celebrates the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation’s $1 Million Jackpot Milestone


Sportech’s Bump 50:50 is proud to celebrate the Chicago Blackhawks Foundation shattering the $1 million mark this week in its Queen of Hearts raffle jackpot.

Bump’s Queen of Hearts raffle for the Blackhawks Foundation (www.blackhawksqoh.com) offers participants an opportunity to win both a weekly prize and a progressive jackpot. The jackpot – which one lucky winner will split equally with the Foundation – currently stands at over $1 million but if not won this week, will continue to accumulate. With each weekly draw that does not result in a win, the odds of winning increase even as the jackpot grows.

Bump’s online progressive jackpot raffle is an important tools in the fundraiser’s toolkit when combined with Bump’s proven technologies and unparalleled support programs.  Best of all, fifty percent of all progressive raffle ticket sales goes to fund Blackhawks Foundation’s charitable mission.

Congratulations to the Blackhawks Foundation, its raffle winners, and beneficiaries!
