New Georgia Lottery game starts Sunday

‘All or Nothing’ to be drawn four times daily

By Todd Northrop

A popular new lottery game format is now finding its way to Georgia.

Starting Sunday, Georgia lottery players will be able to buy tickets for the latest Georgia Lottery game called All or Nothing.

In the new game, players choose 12 numbers from a total pool of 24 numbers, and they can win the top prize by matching either all or none of the 12 numbers drawn to the numbers on their game ticket.

The top prize is $250,000.

Tickets for All or Nothing cost $2 each, and they will go on sale statewide Sunday, March 2.

“All or Nothing is unlike any other draw game offered by the Georgia Lottery,” President and CEO Debbie D. Alford said. “To match or not to match? That is the question. Players are sure to enjoy this new twist.”

All or NothingDrawings will be held four times a day, seven days a week, at 10 am, 2 pm, 6 pm and 10 pm.  All or Nothing is the first and only Georgia Lottery game to be drawn four times a day.

Drawings will be conducted with a computerized drawing system. 

In addition to the two top prizes of $250,000 by matching all or none of the numbers drawn, players will have several other ways to win prizes between $2 and $500.

Overall odds of winning All or Nothing is 1 in 4.5.

Georgia is not the first state to implement the ‘All or Nothing’ game format, which has gained popularity recently in several other states.  Currently, the states of Texas, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota, as well as the country of Ireland, have started All or Nothing games.  (It is called Hit or Miss in Illinois.)

Among the other All or Nothing states, both Texas and Illinois have implemented the game with four daily drawings, as Georgia is doing with its new game.

As with all other Georgia Lottery games, proceeds from All or Nothing will benefit education in the state of Georgia.
