According to mathematician Dr. Stephen Woodcock has less than a chance of less than one in 134 million that a single ticket will win the $ 80 million jackpot in the Powerball lottery draw tonight.
To win the jackpot, you need to match all seven main numbers plus the Powerball. The probability calculator works like this. For the first six balls, ticket holders have:
Even if you’re one of the lucky few to get those seven numbers, 95 percent of players will fall on the final hurdle, as there is only one chance in 20 your Powerball number will be drawn, said Dr. Woodcock told news.com. ouch
With this depressing news in mind, here are some things more likely than winning today’s $ 80 million.
It’s more likely that you can pick two random Aussies and find that they were both bitten by a snake in the past year – an event with a probability of one in 62 million, according to Dr. Woodcock, Lecturer in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Technology, Sydney.
Women are more likely to get pregnant with quintuplets, which is a one in 55 million chance, while finding two wild oysters that both contain pearls is a one in a million chance.
Even picking seven tiles to start a game of Scrabble and picking all of the letters It would be a one in 20 million chance, while four unrelated people who all have the same birthday have a one in 48 million chance.
Also, a ticket will be drawn at your office each year for the Melbourne Cup competition, which is based on 24 runners per year and wins for five years in a row, which equates to a chance of one in 96 million.
« That said, the past 18 months have certainly been very unpredictable, so I think anything is possible. However, I wouldn’t hold my breath if I expected to add $ 80 million to my bank balance tonight, » he said.
The odds of winning the first division in Powerball with a standard 12-game QuickPick are one in 11.2 million, according to The Lott.
The Sydney woman, who currently holds the record as Australia’s biggest lottery winner, having raised $ 107 million in January 2019, won Division 1 with exactly this type of entry.
« It goes without saying that you obviously need an entry to win, and the odds for this Sydney woman were one in 11.2 million, but it was she who held the first entry in Division 1, and she walked away for $ 107 million. You just never know, « The Lott spokeswoman Lauren Cooney told news.com.au.
To win the first Powerball division, you need all seven winning numbers from one to 35 and the Powerball number from one to 20 in one game.
Lott has shown that the most common numbers drawn from the main barrel are seven, nine and 17. The least common numbers drawn are 15 and 34.
When it comes to the all-important Powerball number, the most popular are two, three and 19, while the least common are 16 and 18.
Ms. Cooney announced that the Sydney mother in her forties who was Australia’s biggest lottery winner is still in the same job she was when she won the jackpot. Her husband continues to work and they both still live in Sydney.
She initially thought she had won $ 107,000 when she got the call, but indicated that she would keep working.
« I’m a healthcare professional, but I’m not going to retire. I’m so passionate about my job. It will make me do more health work for issues that are important to me, » she said.
« I’ll share it with my family. I was thinking of my family when I bought the ticket. I’m going to give some money to my favorite charity. They’ll get a whole lot of money. The win gives me the chance. » Go do the things I’ve always wanted to do. We could buy a trailer and travel around too. »
The winner shared how she came to keep Division 1 as the winner at that time.
« It was so random. I decided yesterday to sign up and tag an entry with a few
