All or Nothing game debuts in Minnesota and Iowa

Players In New Lotto Game Will Win Top Prize For Matching All—Or Nothing

JANUARY 28, 2014—The Minnesota and Iowa lotteries are using a player complaint about lotto drawings as the basis for a new game.

The All Or Nothing game debuts Tuesday, Jan. 28, allowing players to win its $100,000 top prize for matching all of the winning numbers in one of its drawings or none of them.

The lotteries announced the new game during an event Friday at a supermarket in Rochester, one of the locations where tickets will be sold. All Or Nothing is a joint game being offered in both states, with two drawings per day, seven days a week. Players in All Or Nothing will 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.     

The game has an hourglass prize structure offering 10 ways to win, with the $100,000 top prize at the two extremes—for matching all or nothing—and smaller prizes working in from there. Players can win the game’s second prize of $1,000 for matching 11 of the winning numbers or just one of them. The $20 prize level is for those who match 10 numbers or two; the $5 level is for those who match nine numbers or three; and players will win $1 for matching eight of the numbers or four. Those who wind up in the middle by matching five, six or seven numbers will not win a prize. The overall odds of winning are 1 in 4.54.

“This is a fun concept that definitely tweaks the traditional lottery drawing,” Minnesota State Lottery Executive Director Ed Van Petten said. Iowa Lottery CEO Terry Rich added, “If you never match anything in lottery drawings, have we got a game for you!”

Drawings will be held at 12:45 p.m. and 8:45 p.m. daily. Players will be able to buy tickets for those drawings until 12:10 p.m. or 8:10 p.m. If they purchase a ticket after the cutoff time, it will be for the next drawing.

Visit www.mnlottery.com for more information about the Minnesota State Lottery. Players can also get the winning numbers 24 hours a day by calling (651) 634-1111.


Editor’s Note: The winning numbers for the midday and evening All Or Nothing drawings will be sent daily at approximately 9:30 p.m.

Ham Lake Man Claims $149.4 million Powerball® Jackpot

Paul White

THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 2013 — Paul White said he’s imagined winning the Powerball jackpot “so many times in my head.” His dream became reality when the second set of numbers on his five-line quick-pick ticket matched the numbers drawn last night to win a share of the $448.4 million jackpot. Two tickets sold in New Jersey also won the jackpot.

White, a project engineer at Elliott Contracting in Minneapolis, said that he learned he won the jackpot this morning after his significant other called him at work and told him there was a jackpot winner in Minnesota. White knew he had two tickets with the Powerball of 32. He checked the ticket and discovered the remaining numbers on one of those lines matched the numbers 5-25-30-58-59 and he was the winner of the $149.4 million jackpot. He selected the $86 million cash option and said some of his winnings will help his family.       

Holiday, 1442 N.E. Crosstown Blvd. in Ham Lake, sold the winning ticket. The store will receive a $50,000 bonus for selling the winning ticket.

This is Minnesota’s 22nd Powerball jackpot winner since Powerball began in 1992. Minnesota has also had six jackpot winners of Lotto*America®, Powerball’s predecessor.
