What Are The Real Odds Of Winning The Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes?
Well according to information from the Publishers Clearing House, it almost makes the lottery seem like a sure thing! According to their information, the odds for winning $5,000 a week for life are a whopping 1 in 1.2 BILLION! The odds of winning $1 Million are even longer, at 1 in 1.3 BILLION. In fact, the odds of winning only $100 is only 1 in 3.6 MILLION!
Compare this to the lottery game, PowerBall....which some describe as a "tax on those bad at math." The odds of winning the grand prize in Powerball are only 1 in 175 million!
