Friday’s drawing of the Mega Millions lottery is without a winner, meaning that there is $1.6 billion up for grabs on Tuesday’s drawing. Yeah, that’s billion with B! A record-breaking lottery jackpot.
While it is fun to imagine what you would do with your new fortune after winning the lottery, what are your chances of actually winning? The answer, not good!
Your chances of winning the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday are 1 in 302,575,350. To put this in perspective, the entire population of the US is just over 325 million.
So my lottery forecast for you is that you probably aren’t going to win! But you have to be in it to win it, so if that $1.6 billion looks good to you, make sure you pick up a ticket or two.
If you are playing, here are a few things that are more likely to happen than winning big playing Mega Millions.
