all seven balls in any given 7-of-58 game draw is 1 in 300,674,088.

By comparison with any seven or eight ball choice scenario presented below, the chance for a succcessful match of a Mega Millions

draw (five white balls from 1 to 70 and one Mega-Ball from 1 to 25) is 1 in 302,575,350. For Powerball (five white balls from 1 to 69

and one Power-Ball from 1 to 26), the chance is 1 in 292,201,338.
