There is very little chance of winning the lottery. Odds of winning have been calculated at 1 in several millions, hundred millions even depending on the game. These odds are even posted in lottery websites. No one is more familiar with odds of winning than statisticians. That is why it is highly unusual for statisticians to play the lottery. Having said all that, the odds of a statistician winning the lottery must be infinitely smaller indeed!
