State lotteries in Iowa and Minnesota announced a new lotto game Friday with a twist coming to both states. Players can win the game’s $100,000 top prize by matching all of the numbers in one of its drawings – or none of them. The “All or Nothing” game debuts Tuesday and its name is self-explanatory: Players can win the top prize of $100,000 by matching all of the winning numbers in one of its drawings or none of them. “We couldn’t decide if people should win for matching them all or coming up empty,” said Ed Van Petten, executive director of the Minnesota State Lottery during an announcement made in Rochester, “so we decided, ‘Heck, let’s do both.’” All or Nothing is a joint game being offered in both states, with two drawings per day, seven days a week. Players in All or Nothing will choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24. Twelve winning numbers will be selected in each mid-day and evening drawing and plays in the game will cost $1. The overall odds of winning are one in 4.54 tries.
