Powerball Probability

If you win the Powerball jackpot today, there are a few things you should know. After beating the 1 in 175 million odds, you have an 11 in 175 million chance of being killed in your car after collecting the winnings. If you survive that, you have a 327,250 to 175 million chance of being robbed of those winnings, and a 805,000 to 175 million chance that new mansion will go up in flames, according to Eve Waltermaurer, associate professor of sociology at State University of New York at New Paltz.
