North Carolina Lottery Launching All or Nothing

Aug 12, 14 North Carolina Lottery Launching All or Nothing

Aug. 12, 2014 – The North Carolina Lottery will in September begin to offer “All or Nothing,” a unique draw game that has become popular in other states where a version of the game is played.

The Lottery announced on Monday that All or Nothing will officially launch Sunday, Sept. 7. Both ticket sales and drawings will begin that day, so players who want to try their luck on the very first drawing better not sleep in – the first drawing will be held at 12:30 p.m.

Tickets for the new draw game will cost $2, and the Lottery will hold two drawings each day, one at 12:30 p.m., the other at 7:30 p.m.

The game’s name, All or Nothing, offers a clue to how it’s played.  Players must choose 12 numbers between 1 and 24, then 12 winning numbers are drawn in each drawing.  Players who match all 12 numbers or players who don’t match any numbers win the game’s $250,000 top prize.

All or Nothing has four other prize levels and a total of ten ways to win.  Matching just one or 11 numbers wins a second prize, worth $500;  matching two or 10 numbers is worth a $50 third prize; players who match three or nine numbers will win $10 fourth prizes; and matching four or eight numbers will win players a break-even, $2 prize.

“If you’re someone who feels like they never get any of the numbers when they play the lottery, this is the game for you,” said Alice Garland, executive director of the North Carolina Education Lottery.

All or Nothing is the first new game the Lottery has introduced in four years, since they began selling Mega Millions tickets in 2010.

“The new game will help the lottery reach a goal of raising $520 million for education programs this year,” Garland said.  “All successful businesses offer new products from time to time.  We hope the ‘either way wins’ theme of this game will appeal to both regular and new lottery players.”
