The history of lottery dates back to 1566 when Queen Elizabeth I held the first ever recorded raffle style lottery with prizes in the form of silver plate and other precious commodities.
The largest and most well known cash lottery games in the world are: Mega Millions, Powerball, EuroMillions, Grand Lotto 6/55, Mega-Sena, and OZ Lotto. In these lottery games, participants purchase lottery tickets for as little as $1 each (in some games), for the shot at winning millions and millions.
Lotteries come in several different formats. The two most popular formats are fixed amount and the “50-50” draw. In a fixed amount style lottery, the grand prize that can be won does not change. It is always a set amount of cash or goods. In a “50-50” draw style lottery, 50% of the revenue generated by the sale of lottery tickets is added to the prize as long as the prize goes unclaimed from week to week. This means the grand prize is constantly increasing until someone wins and it is reset.
The fixed amount style lottery is more dangerous for those sponsoring the lottery because there is always the off chance that someone wins the grand prize early on, before enough tickets have been sold to cover the prize amount.
Now, more importantly, what are your odds of winning the lottery? There are many factors that determine the odds of winning the lottery. These include: where you play, what type of lottery you play, how many tickets you purchase, how many numbers you must select, and how many different combinations of numbers are possible.
With that being said, we can put some rough estimates in place. If you are playing a single state lottery, your odds of winning are about 1 in 18,000,000. If you are playing a multi-state lottery, your odds of winning can be as high as 1 in 120,000,000. While these serve as a crude estimate, these odds vary greatly from lottery to lottery and are constantly changing.
“It is the probability of 2 million people getting together each to play a game of dice with trillion-sided dice. They each roll the dice and they all come up with the exact same number—for example, 550,343,279,001.”
“A miracle is an event so unlikely as to be almost impossible. By that definition, I’ve just shown that you are a miracle,” he wrote. “Now go forth and feel and act like the miracle that you are.”
Buddhists have talked of the preciousness of this incarnation. Binazir recounted this Buddhist analogy: “Imagine there was one life preserver thrown somewhere in some ocean and there is exactly one turtle in all of these oceans, swimming underwater somewhere. The probability that you came about and exist today is the same as that turtle sticking its head out of the water—in the middle of that life preserver. On one try.”
Binazir decided to test the Buddhist understanding against the modern scientific understanding. He looked at the amount of water in the oceans, compared to the size of a life-preserver. He concluded that the chances of a turtle sticking its head out in the middle of the life preserver was about one in 700 trillion.
“One in 400 trillion vs one in 700 trillion? I gotta say, the two numbers are pretty darn close, for such a far-fetched notion from two completely different sources: old-time Buddhist scholars and present-day scientists.”
What is infinity and what does it equal to?
