More Likely To Die By Legal Execution Than Winning The Powerball

By Kyle Quick

Tonight’s estimated $425 million dollar Powerball is the third largest jackpot ever and your odds of winning are a staggering 1 in 175 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.

The odds don't really get a whole lot better for the lower prizes. You have a 1 in 5,153,632 chance to win $1 million and a 1 in 648,975 chance of winning $10,000.

The best odd are for the $4 prize: 1 in 110.81 of you get one ball and the Powerball correct, 1 in 55.41 for just getting the Powerball correct.
