What are the odds of winning Mega Millions?

Posted:

UNDATED (CNN) - People all over the country are hoping they'll wake up Saturday as multimillionaires.

But the odds are definitely not in their favor for Friday's 425-million-dollar Mega Millions jackpot drawing.

In fact, the odds of winning are about one in 259 million.

You can see here a list of things that are more likely to happen to you.

Including death by vending machine, having identical quadruplets and dying in an asteroid apocalypse.

No one has won the jackpot in the last 20 drawings.

In fact, there hasn't been a mega millions winner since October when changes were made to the drawing.
