It was recently reported that a woman named Mavis Wanczyk (53) from the state of Massachusetts, United States, won the biggest lottery prize for a single ticket at nova88 in the United States, worth 760 million US dollars, or around Rp. 10 trillion.
Wanczyk bought his lottery winnings at a convenience store at a gas station in Chicopee City. He immediately contacted his boss at a hospital and stated that he had stopped working after working hard at the hospital for 32 years.
Every week millions of people buy sweepstakes in hopes of becoming millionaires and being able to fly to the Caribbean without thinking about work again.
But most people also know that their chances of winning the lottery are quite difficult. After all, that doesn't stop us from hoping to be rich every time we buy a ticket.
The question is, how likely are we to win the lottery?
Picking the lottery requires us to choose six different numbers between 1 and 60. To get the jackpot we have to choose every one correctly.
Well, the odds of us doing this are 1 in 45 million. If the number is between 1 and 50, the odds are even less, 1 in 14 million.
Compare with some other comparisons. We have a 1 in 700,000 chance of being hit by a failed meteorite in the atmosphere.
So if we buy a lottery ticket, we are more likely to be disappointed than to win the jackpot.
For some lottery winners, of course it will be a dream come true. For others, the dream is like seeing the earth from outer space.
Well, it turns out that the last dream is still more likely because to achieve their dream of becoming an astronaut the probability is 1 in 12 million.

Or how about being the next Usain Bolt or Mo Farah?
It sounds impossible, but we are more likely to join their ranks than win the lottery.
The average person's chance of winning an Olympic gold medal in their lifetime is 1 in 662,000.
So that's it. We are more likely to visit space, become an Olympian, or fall from a meteorite than to win the lottery.
