Father and son win $100,000 prizes in same drawing by playing opposite numbers
A phone call changed the lives of a father and son from Halstad, Minn.

Pedro Ruiz Jr. was on his way to dinner on Dec. 2, when he got a phone call from his father, Pedro Ruiz Sr., asking him to purchase All or Nothing™ tickets for the weekend drawings. Ruiz Jr. purchased his father's tickets and later decided to purchase his own ticket for the Dec. 2 evening drawing. He played the opposite numbers that were on his father's ticket.

There are 24 possible All or Nothing numbers. To win the $100,000 top prize, a ticket must either match all of the 12 winning numbers or none of the winning numbers.

A few hours after the drawing, the family discovered that Ruiz Sr. was a $100,000 winner because his quick-pick ticket did not match any of the winning numbers. Later that night, Ruiz Jr. realized that his ticket had matched all of the winning numbers to win $100,000.

“It’s a miracle, a true gift from God,” said Ruiz Sr. when they arrived at the Lottery's headquarters in Roseville on Dec. 6.

Ruiz Jr. said that he prayed to his mother, who passed away a few years ago, for the money to visit her burial site in Texas. "The first thing we are going to do is visit her and erect a nice memorial stone to her," he said. “This is a wonderful gift that will allow us to re-invest in the family.” Ruiz Jr. is the oldest of eight siblings.

This is the first time that tickets matching all of the winning numbers and none of the winning numbers were sold for the same drawing.

The winning tickets were purchased at the following locations: • Star Mart located at 785 S. Highway 59 in Mahnomen (Ruiz Jr.'s ticket, which matched all of the winning numbers) • Farmers Union Oil Company located at 201 – 4th Ave. E. in Gary (Ruiz Sr.'s ticket, which did not match any of the winning numbers)

Retirement just got a whole lot sweeter for Janice Sanford. The East Bethel resident, who retired from her job of 39 years as a customer service representative with MackayMitchell Envelope Company in Minneapolis last month, can now relax even more after winning $100,000 playing the Lottery's All or Nothing game.

"It was a lot of fun!"

Sanford said the prize money will help make retirement "a little more fun and easy. Maybe now we'll go on a trip this summer!" she added with a smile.
 
     
 
NE IOWA MAN DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO REACT AFTER WINNING $100,000
A northeast Iowa man said he recently got a big surprise when he had his lottery tickets checked at a local retailer.

Larry Metzger of Luana won $100,000 playing All or Nothing, but he didn't know it right away. Store employees at Quillin's Quality Foods, 808 S. Main St. in Monona informed him of his big win last week when he checked his tickets there. Store employees knew their store had sold the winning ticket, but didn't know who bought it until Metzger came forward.

"They all went crazy and I'm sitting here wondering what was going on," Metzger told lottery employees Thursday as he claimed his prize at the lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. "Finally they came out and said, 'You're our big winner!'"

Metzger matched all 12 numbers drawn in All or Nothing for the Feb. 4 evening drawing to win the game's top prize.

The 74-year-old said he didn't know how to react after finding out he'd won $100,000.

"I didn't really get excited," Metzger said. "I didn't go jump off the chair here and go crazy."

Metzger said he plans to save a majority of his winnings.

Second big lottery win for St. Paul resident
A St. Paul resident just won his second big lottery prize! A ticket that Jeffrey Bock purchased for the Aug. 30 evening All or Nothing drawing matched all 12 numbers to win the $100,000 top prize.

Players win the top prize by matching all 12 numbers or none of the numbers, so some might say that Bock is a bit of an overachiever.

"I scanned my ticket and the message said to claim at the Lottery," said Bock. He assumed that he'd won $1,000. A good friend told him that he thought it was actually a $100,000 winner. Bock replied, "If it's $100,000, I'm fainting. So you better bring water!"

They headed to the Lottery's office in Roseville (with a bottle of water). When they arrived, they found out that he had won the $100,000 top prize. Bock didn't faint, but he was very happy with the news. "I thought, 'I am having a good day!'" he recalled.

Bock is actually having a good year. In January 2015, he won $20,000 by playing a scratch game.

He said that he had randomly chosen the All or Nothing numbers that he played and that he plays "to win, baby!"

Speedstop Sunrise, located at 16 - 14th Ave. N.E. in St. Cloud, sold the winning ticket. The store earned a $1,000 bonus for selling the ticket.

IOWA CITY MAN WINS $100,000 LOTTERY PRIZE FOR MATCHING 'NOTHING'
An Iowa City man won a $100,000 lottery prize without matching a single number.

Paul Jagnow won the prize by playing All or Nothing. Players win the $100,000 top prize by matching all of the 12 winning numbers, or none of them. The game is offered by the Iowa and Minnesota lotteries. Jagnow matched zero numbers in October 31, 2014's All or Nothing midday drawing to win.

The winning numbers in Friday's midday drawing were: 6-7-8-12-13-14-17-18-21-22-23-24.

The 70-year-old retiree said he has played the same set of numbers for each drawing since the game debuted in January.

"I picked a set of numbers with birthdays, house address, stuff like that in it," Jagnow told lottery employees as he claimed his prize Monday at the lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. "I tried to come up with just an odd set that nobody else would match."

Jagnow is the game's fourth overall top prize winner, and second top prize winner in Iowa. Jimmy Cheng of Urbandale was Iowa's first top prize winner. Cheng won by matching all 12 numbers selected in the game's midday drawing on May 5.

Gasby's located at 1310 S. Gilbert St. in Iowa City, sold Jagnow's winning ticket. He said he found out he won the game's top prize when he had his ticket checked there Sunday night.

"I was like, 'This is a mistake. I hope it's not a computer error or something,'" he said. "(The clerk) finally showed it to me and I'm going, 'Oh my gosh!'"

Jagnow, who just recently retired from working at Rockwell Collins in Cedar Rapids, said he's still working on a plan for his winnings.

"I've never won anything in my life until just recently," he said. "This is kind of a shock."

And now that he's won, Jagnow said he has to change his strategy.

"I'm going to try to get a new set of unique numbers and keep on going," he said.
 
     
 
Minnesota Woman Wins $100,000 Prize on July 25, 2014
"If you don't play, you can't win," is the Lottery motto of Darlene Snider. The Rosemount resident knows what she's talking about. She won $100,000 and she did it without matching a single number.

She won the prize by playing All or Nothing™. Players win the $100,000 top prize by matching all of the winning numbers or none of the winning numbers.

Snider took her ticket to a Lottery retailer the day after the drawing to find out if she'd won a prize. "I put it under the scanner and it said, 'Take ticket to Lottery office.' I signed the back of the ticket right away and asked the sales clerk, 'What does this mean?' He said, 'It means you won a lot of money.'"

She wasn't sure what she won so she took the ticket to her brother-in-law and he looked up the winning numbers. Her ticket didn't match a single number so he told her that it wasn't a winner. "I said, 'It's All or Nothing,'" said Snider.

Kwik Trip, located at 14941 Florence Trail in Apple Valley, sold Snider's winning ticket.
