Chances of Winning Mega Millions

What Are Your Chances of Winning Mega Millions?


Everyone has their own way of playing the lottery, and although some have their own "winning theories," it's actually just the luck of the draw. In fact, you have a much higher chance of getting struck by lightning than winning the Mega Millions. Here are more very unlikely scenarios that have a better chance of happening than you hitting the jackpot:

  • Getting cancer in your lifetime: 1 in 2
  • Being selected on The Price Is Right: 1 in 36
  • Being audited by the IRS: 1 in 175
  • Being born with 11 fingers or toes: 1 in 500
