According to CNN you have a better chance of doing these four things instead of winning the $425 million
Your chances of hitting the Powerball are about one in 175 million. You have a better chance of doing the following. However, I am still gonna play :)
**Comes from State Farm Insurance
#1.) Hitting a Deer in Hawaii.
The odds of doing this are about 1 in 6000
#2.) Dying from a Bee Sting.
You odds are about one in six million.
#3.) Getting Attacked by a Shark. Odd on this are one in 11.5 million. However, the odds of just dying from any reason at the beach are 1 in 2 MILLION
#4.) Making a Hole in One.
If you are just an amateur, the odds are about 1 in 13,000. If you are an awful golfer obviously your chances are worth.
Taking it to the next level, if you try and do it back-to-back the odds are 1 in 156 million. However, slightly better than winning the Powerball.
#5.) Being Struck By Lightening and Dying
Your chances of dying are about one in three million. In comparison your chances of hitting the Lotto one in 175 million.
However, your chances of just being struck, if you live to be 80, are about 1 in 10,000.
**That’s according to the National Weather Service.
Even considering all of this you chances and odds are zero if you don’t play :)
