The jackpot for today's (November 28th) Powerball drawing has risen to a record $500 million for the multi-state lottery, after there was no winner in Saturday's (November 24th) drawing for a $325 million prize, which was the fourth-largest in the game's history. The record for Powerball, which is played in 42 states and the District of Columbia, is $365 million, awarded to eight co-workers at a Nebraska meat-packing plant in 2006. The overall U.S. record lottery is $656 million, set in March for a MegaMillions jackpot that was split among three winners. So what are you chances of winning? It's 1 in more than 175 million. CNN put together some comparisons to illustrate just how ridiculously long those odds are, saying your chances of dying from a bee sting are 1 in 6.1 million, of dying from being struck by lightning are 1 in 3 million and of being attacked by a shark are 1 in 11.5 million.
