Still no winner in Queen of Hearts’ game at Crickets in Youngstown


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – There’s still no winner after a Queen of Hearts’ drawing for Crickets Bar and Grill’s big jackpot Monday night.

The Jack of Clubs was selected. The jackpot is now $230,000.

No alcoholic beverages were permitted outside of the bar and patio areas but since some people were bringing their drinks into the parking lot, Crickets had to do the drawing about half an hour early.

The next drawing will be August 14 and Crickets said it’s drawing until there is a winner. The bar is skipping a week so it can get the proper permits.

Tickets can be purchased from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week.

You must be in attendance to receive the full amount.

Owners say it is bringing positive attention to Youngstown and they hope it will bring business back to the south side.

Donavito’s Restaurant and Catering Co. and Lena were set up behind the building Monday night, serving food.

Crickets’ parking lot closed just before 5 p.m. Monday, but additional parking was available at the following locations:

  • Giannios Candy Company Inc.: 430 Youngstown Poland Rd.
  • The Embassy Banquet Center: 5030 Youngstown Poland Rd.
  • Utopia: 876 E. Midlothian Blvd.

Shuttles were running to the bar, starting at 4 p.m.
