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

All or Nothing players will choose 12 numbers from a pool of 24. A $1 ticket gives players a shot at a top prize of $100,000.

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.

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

All or nothing debuts Tuesday. There will be two drawings every day. One hitch is that the top prize will be divided if more than seven tickets win in any one drawing.
