Insider BuzzInsider Buzz: Iowa and Minnesota lotteries kick off new multi-state gameRating:

Includes video report

By Todd Northrop

The Minnesota and Iowa state lotteries have unveiled a new two-state game in which players win the prize by matching all of the numbers — or none of them.

In the new game, called All or Nothing, players choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24.  There are 10 different ways to win prizes by matching various numbers, but the top prize of $100,000 is won by matching either all the numbers drawn or none of them.

Tickets cost $1 each, and drawings are held twice a day, at 12:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. Central Time.

The game concept has been growing in popularity in recent years, and is currently used in the states of Illinois and Texas, as well as in Ireland.

Minnesota State Lottery Director Ed van Petten says the two-state effort is a novel concept.  He says the bigger population base makes the game work better.

All or Nothing game logo"It's the first game that's been developed based on customer comments," Van Patten said.

His Iowa counterpart, Terry Rich, says it's a game for people who never match anything in lottery drawings.

"We're real excited," said Rich. "We're real proud to partner with the Minnesota Lottery."

The Minnesota Lottery stated in a recent press release that All or Nothing uses "a player complaint about lotto drawings as the basis for a new game."  Some lottery insiders might interpret that as pointing the finger at computerized drawings, which currently dominate the Minnesota game lineup.

The new All or Nothing game drawings will be conducted by the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), the same organization that operates the popular Powerball game.  Real mechanical lottery drawing equipment will be used for the drawings.

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

To make way for the new game, the Iowa Lottery has retired the $100,000 Cash Game.  The final drawing was conducted on Saturday.

The winning numbers for All or Nothing will appear minutes after each drawing on Lottery Post's Iowa Lottery Results and Minnesota Lottery Results pages, as well as on Lottery Post's Multi-State Lottery Results page.  A Payouts link next to the drawing results is available in order to view all of the different prizes that can be won by matching various numbers.

These types of games are not as easy as they appear. Just another game to separate us from our money.

        Well....only $1 a tic. Jackpot is only $100000. Texas is $2 a tic, but the jackpot is $250000.

        I watch this game and have some pet numbers I watch, but I rarely play it anymore.

                    I wish they'd bring this All or Nothing game to California. Our draw games are so stale. Unhappy

                    They can axe the awful Daily Derby and put this in its place.(or course it would be pari-mutuel AoN)
