The Charm of the Lottery

The Charm of the Lottery

May 9, 2014

There are a lot of people out there that see winning the lottery as the easy answer to their prayers. It’s the shortcut to an easy life, or so they have us believe.

For one thing, it doesn’t work out well for everyone that wins. And let’s get a bit real. What are our chances of winning? Pretty small as it goes.

The odds of picking the correct six numbers where there are 49 numbers in the draw tends to be in the realms of 1 in 14,000,000.

Or, according to, a person who drives 10 miles to buy a lottery ticket in the US is three times more likely to be killed in a car accident while driving to buy the ticket, than he is to win the jackpot.

And your chance of winning the megabucks US Powerball Lottery is about 1 in 175,000,000.

Still fancy your odds?
