Find the Joker

Started this year to complement the Members' Draw, this fun money maker is all about finding the Joker which has been placed in an envelope along with all 52 other playing cards.

So, Week 1 starts with 53 cards; raffle tickets are purchased at £1 each, buy as many as you like, members and guests.  The raffle is drawn and the owner of the winning ticket gets to select an envelope.
If the winner picks the envelope containing the Joker, they win the money in the Jackpot.  If the card is an Ace to 5, you win £20; cards 6 to 10 win £40; select a picture card and win £75.  So, as you see, the raffle ticket winner, each week is guaranteed to win a cash prize.  The card they select is then removed leaving 52 cards. for the following week, the the Jackpot increases until someone selects an envelope containing the Joker.
If the game runs for a number of weeks, there is the possibility that the  prize pot could accumulate to several hundred pounds or more.  When the Joker is eventually selected, the Jackpot will revert to £100 with all 53 envelopes back on the table.

Here are the winners and the accumilations for the first Series:
