In honor of the Mega Millions World Record Jackpot $540 Million/cash option $389 Million (went up again today) drawing tomorrow/Friday (3/30), Archie wanted to pass this nugget of 411 along! Of course if you don't play, you can't win. But there are far few winners, in fact, according to this write up, investing/playing a lottery is not a very good investment, it goes as far as saying 'Lottery players are Suckers!'... Click here for the 411 !
A few stats to put winning the BIG JACKPOT in perspective: -Getting pregnant from a one-night stand: 1 in 20 -Getting struck by lightning: 1 in 10,000 -Dying in an airplane crash: 1 in 355,318 -Being dealt a royal flush in a given hand of poker: 1 in 655,750 -Dying from a flesh-eating bacteria: 1 in 1 million. -Winning the Mega Millions Jackpot:1 in 176 million
BUT AGAIN....'IF YOU DON'T PLAY, YOU CAN'T WIN'! MAYBE YOU 'LL BE THE OTHER LONG SHOT STAT... I WON OVER $500 MILLION & I HARDLY EVER/NEVER BUY LOTTERY TICKETS!' IF THAT HAPPENS MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD STORY TO GO WITH IT, EVEN IF YOU DON'T!
