purchased in Rhinelander
A lucky person is $100,000 richer after purchasing a winning All or Nothing ticket at a Rhinelander convenience store, the Wisconsin Lottery announced Tuesday afternoon.
"All or Nothing hit it big on August 23, 2020, when a player matched 11 of 11 numbers to win the $100,000 top prize during the midday drawing of the Wisconsin Lottery's recently-launched twice daily drawings," the lottery office said.
The lucky winner purchased the winning ticket at Lincoln Fuel BP (2141 Lincoln St.) in Rhinelander, the release states.
Since the Lottery added a second daily drawing to three of its Lotto games, Pick 3, Pick 4, and All or Nothing, players can play in two drawings each day - the first one after 1:30 p.m. (midday drawing) and the second after 9 p.m. (evening drawing), the release states. This All or Nothing top prize winner is the first one for the game during the midday draw.
Retailers receive a 2 percent winning incentive for any prize $600 and above. Lincoln Fuel BP will receive $2,000 winning incentive for selling this ticket.
There have been 39 All or Nothing $100,000 top prize winners since the game debuted in April 2019, the release states.
All or Nothing players can win the $100,000 top prize by matching 0/11 numbers or by matching 11/11 numbers. Of the 39 top prize winners, 62 percent of those winners matched 0 of the 11 numbers and 38 percent of the winners matched all 11 of the numbers. The Aug. 23 ticket won by matching 11/11 numbers.

The odds of winning All or Nothing's $100,000 top prize are 1 in 352,716. Drawings are held every day after 1:30 p.m. for midday draws and after 9 p.m. for evening draws.
Tickets must be purchased before 1:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. to be included in that day's midday or evening drawing, the release states.
