ROCHESTER, Minn. — If you have ever played the lottery and did not have a single match, you probably felt unlucky. Now if that happens, you are a winner.
The Iowa and Minnesota lotteries are teaming up for a new game called “All or Nothing.”
The game acts just as it sounds. If you match all twelve numbers, you win $100,000. If you match none of the numbers, you win $100,000.
The winnings work their way down from there, so if you match eleven or one of the numbers, you win $1,000. If you match ten or two of the numbers, you win $20. If you match nine or three of the numbers, you win $5. If you match eight or four of the numbers, you win $1 and if you match five, six or seven numbers, you win nothing.
“Both states participate in Hot Lotto and Power Ball and the Mega Millions game, so we’ve done other games together with other states. To my knowledge this is the first time just the two states have launched a lotto style game like this,” said Ed Van Petten, Executive Director of the Minnesota State Lottery.
The game is set to launch on Tuesday. Tickets are $1 and there will be two daily drawings; one is at 12:45 p.m. and the other is at 8:45 p.m.
