You’re More Likely To Get Struck By Lightning Than Win $540 Million Dollars

The MegaMillions jackpot now sits at a record $540 million dollars. After Uncle Sam takes his cut, that’s still a cash payout of $380 million dollars. The thought of winning that much money is staggering, but statistically unlikely.

Odds that you’ll win? 175,000,000 to 1. Odds that you’ll be struck by lightning tomorrow? 576,000 to 1.

Still feeling lucky? Here are a few more things that are more likely to happen to you tomorrow:

  • Being audited by the IRS 175 to 1
  • Chainsaw Injury: 4,464 to 1
  • Fatally slipping in bath or shower 2,232 to 1
  • Injury from shaving: 6,585 to 1
  • Fireworks Injury: 19,556 to 1
  • Striking it rich on Antiques Roadshow 60,000 to 1
  • Date a Supermodel: 88,000 to 1
  • Struck by Lightning 576,000 to 1
  • Suffocate in Bed 2,000,000 to 1
  • Killed by Lightning 2,320,000 to 1
  • Dying in a Plane Crash 11,000,000 to 1
  • Getting canonized into a Saint 20,000,000 to 1
  • Dying from a shark attack 300,000,000 to 1

Still, Forbes says it actually makes economic sense to buy a MegaMillions ticket. The drawing is tomorrow. Are you in?
