MCHENRY (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Once again, the McHenry VFW Post’s Queen of Hearts raffle drawing ended without a winner -- the same as it has every Tuesday since November 2016. 

The jackpot this week was for nearly $6.1 million, though the winner would have taken only 60 percent of that sum, before taxes.

The card drawn Tuesday was the 10 of spades, not the queen of hearts, so a whole new drawing begins Wednesday morning. Tickets sold before that time are no good.

VFW leaders expected a deluge of crowds.

The contest ends next week, for sure. The VFW now will follow through with plans to do a "drawdown" next Tuesday, Sept. 18. They'll keep drawing until someone wins.

Tickets are six for $5.
