The Queen of Hearts will soon begin again at Garrettsville's SkyLane Bowling Alley.

After breaking the national record last month, owner Aaron King said he would restart the game after restructuring the winnings.

Starting Nov. 6, the first drawing will be for a jackpot starting at $342,629. That is 10 percent of the whopping $3.4 million jackpot taken by Mantua's Terri Vechery.

Tickets will also be sold from the Sugarbush Golf Course in Garrettsville on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. starting Oct. 22. Tickets will only be sold at SkyLane on Sundays.

It will be mandatory to attend the drawing on Sundays in order to win full jackpot amounts less than $750,000. If the jackpot tops that, the winner does not have to be present.

Those picked that are not in attendance will receive 50 percent of the scheduled total.

Drawings will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Sundays, with ticket sales stopping at 4 p.m. Anyone 18 years or older is eligible to play.

Tickets cost $5 for one ticket or $20 for five tickets. A W2-G form will be issued for all winnings greater than $600. Awarded funds will not be given until the form is completely filled out.

The game will feature new payouts. Using a $400,000 jackpot example, here is how much the winner can expect:

Card numbers 2-10 will receive 10 percent ($40,000), face card will receive 12 percent ($48,000), aces will receive 15 percent ($60,000), jokers will receive 20 percent ($80,000), and the King of Hearts will receive 50 percent ($200,000).

The Queen of Hearts will, of course, receive 90 percent of the jackpot with 10 percent rolled over to begin the next drawing.

Scheduled Sunday drawings at SkyLane's include Nov. 6, Dec. 4, Jan. 8 and Feb. 12.
