Your chance of winning the Lottery
We all know the probability is low. But how low?
Let's take the Powerball, an incredibly popular lottery in the USA. Last week someone won $571 million in the Powerball.
So what are your chances of winning?
If your 5 numbers plus the Powerball match the winning six numbers drawn, then you win or share the Grand Prize. If the jackpot is not won in any drawing, the First Prize Pool Money is carried forward and is added to the next Powerball Jackpot.
Your chance of getting 5 + Powerball - Grand Prize is 1 in 292,201,338
Powerball offers 9 ways to win, and here are the probabilities..
