Who Wants to Be a Billionaire?
This is What's Trending Today...
Who wants to be a billionaire?
For a $2 ticket, people have a chance to win the Mega Millions record-breaking lottery jackpot of $1.6 billion. The drawing is on Tuesday night in the United States.
Players also have a chance at winning the Powerball jackpot, which is now up to $620 million. That drawing will be on Wednesday night.
Mega Millions is a lottery game played in 44 American states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The winning ticket must match six numbers, from 1 to 70. Several states permit online ticket purchases. Out-of-state or overseas purchases are not permitted.
The first Mega Millions drawing was on May 17, 2002. That winner received a jackpot of $28 million – a small amount compared to this week's jackpot.
The most recent Mega Millions drawing on October 19 was for a jackpot of $1 billion dollars. But no one won. It was the 25th drawing in a row that did not result in a winner.
About 280 million tickets were sold for the October 19 drawing. Those tickets covered 60 percent of all possible number combinations.
So, what are your chances of winning the $1.6-billion jackpot this time?
Very, very small.
The financial website The Motley Fool says the chance of someone winning the Mega Millions jackpot is 1 in 302,575,350. The chance is a little better with the Powerball. It is 1 in 292,201,338.
You are more likely to get struck by lightning than win the jackpot, at least in the United States. The National Weather Service says a person has about a 1 in a million chance of getting hit.
You are much more likely to get accepted to Harvard University. The Ivy League school accepted 5 percent of its 39,000 applicants for its 2021 class. That is a 1 in 20 chance.
Americans even have a better chance at becoming president than they do at winning this week's jackpot. The U.S. population is about 326 million. There are about 10 presidents in an average lifetime. So, a person's chances at becoming president are 1 in 32.6 million. However, the U.S. Constitution requires that a person be at least 35 years old and a "natural born citizen" to be elected president.
And that's What's Trending Today.
