We all want to be rich, and it turns out that the chances of becoming rich are almost equal to the chances of implausible events happening in someone's life. Like the odds of you being born in a billionaire family, which is almost just as big as you being hit by an asteroid. Unfortunately, we can’t all be born into a super wealthy family, but don´t worry it is not too late to become rich - All you have to do is buy lottery tickets online!
You are already winning, here’s why:
The odds of you actually being born
Let’s start at the very beginning shall we. In a recent talk at TEDx San Francisco, Mel Robbins, a funny self-help author, said that scientists estimate the probability of your being born at about one in 400 trillion. That’s huge!
It all starts off with the probability of your parents meeting. If they met one new person of the opposite sex every day from age 15 to 40, that would be about 10,000 people. After that, you have to look at the odds of them actually liking each other. Then the relationship as to actually go long term. After that the probability of your actual physical creation swimming upstream with your name on it, is one in 400 quadrillion. If you think that’s it, we’re only getting started as you need to remember that the probability of every one of your ancestors reproducing successfully is one in 1045,000.
So, as you can see, from the moment you are born, the odds are in fact in your favour already. It’s simply a case of what you do with them that matters. If you ever thought that the odds of buying a lottery ticket online and actually winning are too slim and that it would be a miracle so unlikely as to be almost impossible, by definition, we have just proven that you are a miracle, and that the odds of winning the lottery with your lucky lottery numbers you have hopefully just played, are already in your favour and A LOT closer than you think!
Born in a billionaire family
The idea that your "chances" of getting rich can be quantified is a bit of a fallacy really. Think about it. It’s all based on the idea that there is a finite amount of wealth in the world but the truth is, there is no cap on the number of people that can become millionaires or billionaires. Even though children often “inherit” economic advantages and disadvantages from their parents, you can end up a self-made millionaire though hard work and of course luck.
Getting a royal flush in the world serious poker
A Royal Flush is the highest ranked hand in the card game of poker and just about everyone knows that a Royal Flush is the best possible hand that a player can be dealt in poker, getting a straight flush with the Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace cards.
Most veteran poker players have had their poker faces tested a few times when they are lucky enough to experience first-hand these cards showing up in their hand. In a 7 card game, not taking into account skill or any other factors, your chances of getting a Royal Flush are about 1 in 30,940. However, your chances of getting a Royal Flush with your first five cards in straight poker are significantly less - in 649,740. To put that number into some perspective, if you were dealt 20 poker hands every night over the course of your lifetime you would expect to get a royal flush once in your lifetime (89 years)! So, unless you’re a world class poker player you’ll not make a million playing poker.
Become an astronaut
The solar system, the universe, and the stars have long held a spell over us. Ask a classroom filled with children, what they would like to be when they are big, and you are sure to hear at least a few boys (mostly) who say, “When I’m big, I’m going to be an astronaut.”
Unfortunately, the chances of becoming an astronaut are infinitesimally small. No matter the background, NASA wants its astronauts to have at least a bachelor's degree in engineering, biological science, physical science or mathematics. Since Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first man to go into space in April 1961, there have only been a further 535 people who have followed in his footsteps. That’s a mere 0.000000071 percent of the world’s population.
Hit by an asteroid
With the Mega Millions lottery swelling to a massive $363 million for this Friday night’s draw and the US Powerball shooting through the $200 million jackpot zone, lottery players are counting on astronomical luck to scoop the top jackpot prize. But someone will be taking home these jackpots soon enough and although the chances of being hit by an asteroid are about 1 in 1.6 million, you won’t be enjoying a lotto lifestyle that’s for sure.
Dating a millionaire
If it’s the millionaire lifestyle you’re after and you are looking for the best odds to do so (if you are single of course), you could always date a millionaire, as the odds are just 1 in 215. On the other hand if you could buy lottery tickets online and win the lottery, you could simply and sit back and wait for someone to come your way. The fact that you will be wealthy beyond your wildest dreams will make you extremely attractive to the opposite sex.
Win the lottery
So, what’s it to be? You could always start off and try date a millionaire, learn to play poker and by that we mean play it REALLY well and hit a Royal Flush at the World Series of Poker, or if this sounds too hard and too much work, you can just win any of the available lotto games right here at PlayHugeLottos.com and be the millionaire!
The only "work" you actually have to do, is to choose your favourite lucky lotto numbers and buy a lottery ticket online! Who knows, if you win the jackpot and become rich, you could always buy a trip to space!
Now go forth, buy lottery tickets online and feel and act like the miracle that you are!
Best of luck!
