What Are Your Odds Of Winning The Lottery?

Whether they’re trying to win a new car, win a laptop, or simply when a race, it’s our natural instinct to love the feeling of coming in first. However, no form of competition is more addicting than trying to win the lottery. At some point in our lives, we all dream about being presented with a giant cheque and taking our lottery winnings the bank. Whether its superstition, habit or optimism, people are hooked on playing the lottery.  Despite our brains evolving to be able to make more complex calculations, when faced with a problem we can’t solve – typically mathematical – our brains revert to making fast decisions, such as buying a lottery ticket. It also works the same with going to a sports bookie to bet on horse racing or other sports events. Instead of thinking about the realistic odds we have to actually win, we let our imaginations take over and we begin to think of all of the things we could do with that money. We could buy cars for all of our friends and family, a giant house on the beach, and live the life of luxury everyone dreams about. Our only problem would be trying to figure out how to invest lottery winnings to make even more money. It all sounds glamorous, but the odds of you winning the mega-millions are not in your favor. In fact, you have about a 1 in 176 million shot of winning. Here are some outrageous things more likely to happen to you than winning millions from the lottery:

Odds:  1 in 112,000,000.

Dying in an Airline-Related Terrorist Attack:
Odds: 1 in 25,000,000.
