We’ve had a blast reading your comments this month about what you think we’ve had in the works. Thanks for joining in the fun and sending in your guesses!
Today, we’ve got the big announcement. Robert, one of our blog readers, NAILED IT with his guess on Jan. 13: the Minnesota State Lottery and the Iowa Lottery ARE working together to offer a multi-state version of a game called “All or Nothing.”
All or Nothing sales begin on Tuesday and the game’s first two drawings will be that same day.
We think its name is self-explanatory: You can win All or Nothing’s top prize of $100,000 by matching all of the numbers in one of its drawings or none of them. We’ve been joking around that we couldn’t decide if people should win for matching everything or coming up empty, so we decided to do both!
There are 10 ways you can win in the game’s hourglass prize structure. You’ll win the $100,000 top prize at the two extremes – for matching all or nothing – and smaller prizes from $1 to $1,000 working in from there. Here are all the details:
ALL OR NOTHING
Ticket price: $1
Sold in: Iowa and Minnesota
Players choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24
Drawings twice a day, seven days a week, at 12:45 and 8:45 p.m.
|Numbers Matched||Prize||Odds Of Winning|
|12||$100,000||1 in 2,704,156|
Here in Iowa, All or Nothing will replace Iowa’s $100,000 Cash Game, which offers a top prize of $100,000 and has had drawings six days a week. The final Cash Game drawing will be tomorrow (Jan. 25).
And may the best state win in All or Nothing, right?!
