CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Grayton Road Tavern's new "Queen of Hearts" game has been put on hold effective immediately.
Grayton Road Tavern owner, James Page, offered the following statement Thursday night regarding the news:
Ticket sales had opened at several west side locations to kick the new game off on Thursday, and roughly 1,000 tickets were sold.
All ticket holders will receive refunds.
The Grayton Road Tavern has every ticket buyer's name and number, and will begin facilitating the refund process.
The game, which took Northeast Ohio by storm, reached a $5.5 million jackpot in March as the lucky lady was revealed.
The seven-figure winnings went to an unidentified Northeast Ohio man.
The new game was set to open with a $550,000 jackpot, which, per game rules, was taken from the previous jackpot.
