Mega Millions Lottery Odds

For those of you who see a lottery ticket in your future (The Mega Millions Jackpot is estimated at $640 million for the drawing tonight) the odds are in your favor whenever the prize amount exceeds the odds, but don't use this as your retirement plan.

Interesting odds... 1 of every...

  • 178,000 will date a supermodel
  • 200,000 will be a conjoined twin
  • 649,000 will get a royal flush
  • 836,000 will be struck by lightning
  • 6,100,000 will die from a bee sting
  • 10,800,000 will die in a plane crash this year
  • 12,100,000 will be attacked by a shark
  • 38,900,000 will be killed by a lizard
  • 112,200,000  will be killed by a vending machine
  • 175,711,536 will win the Mega Millions jackpot tonight
The bad news is your odds are bad. The good news is, your odds of dating a supermodel are much better than you expected.

If any supermodels happen to be reading this...e-mail me...

Here's what I'm buying if I win.
