What Are Your Chances of Winning the Powerball?
Do you ever dream of winning the Powerball lottery jackpot? Of course you do, as do most people. Wouldn’t it be nice to win dozens of millions of dollars as many people already have. But have you ever considered what your chances of winning Powerball actually are? Actually, your chances are astronomical. That’s because the odds of
파워볼 winning the Powerball jackpot are approximately 1-in-195-million.
1-in-195-million. That’s a huge number, isn’t it? Try grasping it; it means that if 195 million people bought one Powerball ticket, only one of those people would win. Maybe it’s difficult for you to visualize such a number. OK, then consider this – Have you ever watched a baseball game at Yankee Stadium? Yankee Stadium has a seating capacity of 51,000 people. Imagine that you were at a baseball game and one person in the audience would be randomly drawn to win a prize. Would you get excited? Probably not. You know that with so many people, the chances of them picking you at random is virtually nil. Yet, you might think that you actually have a shot at winning Powerball.
If you had to compare your chances of winning Powerball with the Yankee Stadium example, it would work like this – You would have to put 3820 Yankee Stadiums side-by-side and fill them to capacity. Then you would have to choose one person in all of the 3820 stadiums. That would be approximately the same chances of winning as would be the chances of winning Powerball. Now how do you feel about your chances of winning Powerball?
