New lotto game unveiled in MinnesotaA new lottery game will debut in Minnesota and Iowa on Tuesday.
The All or Nothing drawing allows players to win its $100,000 top prize for matching all the winning numbers in one of its drawings – or none of them.
The game was announced Friday at a Hy-Vee in Rochester, Minn.
The joint-state game will have two drawings a day, seven days a week. Players choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24. Twelve winning numbers will be selected in each midday and evening drawing. Tickets will cost $1 per play.
In addition to the top prize for matching either extreme, smaller prizes are awarded for matching some of the numbers. For example, the second prize of $1,000 is awarded for matching 11 numbers or one number. No prize is given for matching five, six or seven numbers.
Drawings will be held at 12:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. Overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.54.
