All or Nothing to debut with Iowa Lottery

Have you ever not got one single number right in a lottery game and tossed the ticket aside in frustration?

Well, in a new lottery game that debuts Tuesday, that ticket could be worth $100,000.

The Iowa Lottery and Minnesota Lottery have announced a joint venture for a new game called All or Nothing with a top prize of $100,000.

Players in the game choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24. If players get all the numbers right, they win $100,000. If they get all the numbers wrong, they also win $100,000. Players that get either one or 11 numbers right win $1,000. There are also smaller prizes of $1, $5 and $20.

Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich and Minnesota Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Patten made the announcement of the new game at a Hy-Vee in Rochester, Minn. Friday.

“We’re real excited,” said Terry Rich, CEO of the Iowa Lottery. “We’re real proud to partner with the Minnesota Lottery.”

The game is based on a model used in Texas and is also a result of those customers who comment they don’t get any numbers right.

“It’s the first game that’s been developed based on customer comments,” Van Patten said.

The All or Nothing drawings are twice a day, seven days a week at 12:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. The odds of winning the top prize of $100,000 are still a longshot as they are 1 in 2.7 million. Tickets are $1 each and the overall odds of winning any prize is 1 in 4.54.

This game replaces the previous $100,000 Cash Game offered by the Iowa Lottery.
