Just read the minutes from February commissioner meeting. They are starting the process to introduce a new game called All or Nothing. On the heels of the new Powerball pricepoint, they want to have a $2 game of their own. They discussed this in the meetings in that they want to get to the $2 price point.

A player picks 12 numbers from a field of 24. If all 12 numbers that are picked are drawn, or if the player has none of his numbers drawn, the top prize is $250,000. 11 numbers or 1 number drawn pay $50. 9 or 3 pays $10. 8 or 4 pays $2. If 5, 6, or 7 of the player's numbers  are drawn, there is no prize.

They are going to have 4 draws a day! 10am; 12:27pm; 6pm; 10:12pm. The 10am and 6pm times will be new draw times. If everything goes according to plan, they figure this game will kick off around August.

I was hoping they would introduce a game like Quinto, but we'll see how this goes.

Wondering if any states already have a game like All or Nothing.

    Seems like everything's going to $2.

    Makes me wonder how long it'll be before Pick3 and Pick4 and Pick5 go to $2.

    That would suck.

      Well If pick3 and pick 4 goes to two dollars, I hope what they give you for donating plasma goes up. That would really mess

      up my budget bad. I would have to factor in the lawyer for the divorce, then child support, etc. That would just really mess me up.

      LOL, lets hope that doesn't happen. I completely agree rdgrnr that would suck bad.Unhappy

        it seems to me that if texas introduces this game...they would never make any money from it...it would be like a break even endeavor...as a player it would be great...dont really see how the "state" would benefit...although the people would benefit for a change.Sun Smiley

          Just realized I made a mistake.

          11 numbers or 1 number pays $500.

          10 numbers or 2 numbers pays $50.

          Sounds like an interesting game, but I sure wouldn't drop $2 four times a day. Whew!

            We will probably see a trend of states trying to get away with the 2 dollar sales for various lottery games.

              That would suck.

              Sure hope thye don't, rdgrnr, the payoffs just don't justify it.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
