YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - The jackpot has topped $1.2 million for a drawing that was meant to boost business at a northeast Ohio pub and has raised questions from local and state officials about the legality and logistics of the game.

The Vindicator in Youngstown (https://bit.ly/1O4O2zU ) reports an Austintown Township bar had its latest “Queen of Hearts” drawing Sunday. The chosen ticket’s owner didn’t win, so the jackpot is expected to climb for the next drawing.

Participants buy $1 tickets and try to pick which slot on a board of cards holds the game’s namesake card to win the prize. Seven cards remain.

Thousands of people had showed up for recent drawings. Sunday’s crowd was smaller after a rule change to allow a winner to get the full jackpot even if they aren’t present.
