If you bought a Michigan Mega Millions ticket, pay close attention.
The Mega Millions prize-winning billion-dollar ticket, the third largest lottery prize in US history, has been sold in Michigan, according to the Mega Millions website. The winning numbers were 4, 26, 42, 50, 60 and Mega Ball 24.
The Mega Millions Grand Prix has been on the rise since September 15, when a winning ticket was sold in Wisconsin.
The fifth largest lottery prize in the country’s history has been announced. The Powerball jackpot of $ 731.1 million has been won in Maryland, with only cash compensation paid for that whopping $ 546 million.
The winning numbers for the Mega Millions draw of $ 865 million were 10, 19, 26, 28, 50 and Mega Ball 16. The total cash amount was only $ 638.8 million. Eleven tickets match five numbers, according to Mega Millions, including two $ 2 million winners in Florida.
The odds that someone will win megapixels is 1 in 302,575,350.
Statisticians have tried in various news reports to sum up the long odds of winning the jackpot. Ronald L. Wasserstein, Executive Director of the American Statistical Association, “Human beings are not naturally qualified to understand such large numbers.”
Stephen Blair, a professor of mathematics and statistics at Portland State University, told People that people should imagine a swimming pool 40 feet wide, 120 feet long and 5 feet deep, filled with M & Ms, only one of which is green. To win, all the player has to do is jump blindfolded and spin around until he finds a lone green M&M.
Or maybe try Wasserstein’s example: Stand on the corner of a soccer field and start placing dollar bills until you put down 302,575,350 of them: That would occupy about 585 soccer fields, he said.
